Antonio Bastardo Suspended 50 Games for Biogenesis PED Use

As if the Philadelphia Phillies needed any more problems, in their bullpen no less. According to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal, Phillies reliever Antonio Bastardo, one of the few bright spots in a horrendous bullpen, has been suspended 50 games for PED use related to the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic.

This is the same clinic to which names like Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun have been linked, but not many saw this Bastardo suspension coming. There are no details yet as to which drugs he used and for how long. It is possible that his deal with the MLB prevents them from releasing that type of information.

Bastardo has been the team’s best reliever this year, going 3-2 with a 2.32 ERA, 14 holds, 2 saves, and 3 blown saves.
