Detroit's Neifi Perez suspended for 80 games after 3rd positive test for stimulant

August 3, 2007

DETROIT (AP) -- Tigers infielder Neifi Perez was suspended for 80 games Friday after testing positive for a third time for a banned stimulant.

Perez was suspended for 25 games on July 6 when he tested positive for a second time. Under baseball's labor contract, a player who tests positive for the first time is sent for counseling.

Perez has been the only player suspended by baseball for stimulants since baseball banned them before the 2006 season.

It's sad that a third offense only gets 80 games. It tells me that the MLB steriod policy (along w/ MLBPA's reaction) is a PR ploy, and not a serious attempt to rid the game of PED's.

Baseball (and all American Sports) need to look at the international anti-doping agencies for guidance.
