    Look at the bright side:

    1) PEDs help you recover from injury

    2) 50 game suspension means Volquez won't at all be rushed back from TJ surgery

    3) This season was a wash for him anyway

    Why suspend a guy whos already on the DL. Not like it really matters for him. Of course I know they have to but still the Reds could take him off the DL, let the 50 games happen and put him right back on the DL im sure.

    Seriously, the first thing I thought about was, well, he can't rush back and should be at absolute full strength for the start of next year. The way the season is going and looks to be headed, what did we really need him for anyway
    Hey Homer! If you can put it together, you'll put the Reds over the top....think about it.

    I suspect this is him being an idiot and taking some illegal stuff in the dominican and not realizing what he was doing. I hope he wasnt on them when he was pitching well.

    I'm guessing he took them to recover from TJ; he tested positive in ST

    Yea im guessing he did also. Things in the dominican arent looked like it here. I bet tons of guys from the dominican do shady things just because of how easy it is there.

    If he has some leftover PEDs he needs to distribute them to the rest of the staff.

    When does this suspension begin? whenever the Reds activate him and say he's ready to pitch, or does it start now?

    It doesn't make much sense to suspend someone who is on the DL. That wouldn't be much of a penalty to pay. But since when did things have to make sense??

    Re: Volquez to be suspended 50 games for PED use

    According to the fantasy updates on cbssports.com, he can serve the suspension on the DL and this won't impact anything as far as his return...

    "Volquez was a potential second-half contributor in Fantasy and this news likely won't keep him from reaching his late July or early August return date, since he can serve the suspension while on the DL. He was reportedly ahead of schedule and could return shortly after the All-Star break. He remains a must-stash in deeper leagues with DL spots still. He could be a dominant Fantasy arm during crunch time down the stretch." - Cbssports.com

    They really cant do anything about it. The Reds could take him off the DL and just let him sit there. Would the MLB really go through the hassle of trying to prove that a guy couldnt come off the DL? Good luck fighting that with the players association.
