    Freddy Galvis gets 50-game PED suspension

    Injured Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis was suspended 50 games Tuesday after testing positive for Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance.

    In a statement, Galvis claimed that “a trace amount of a banned substances — 80 parts in a trillion — was detected in my urine sample” and that he’d never knowingly take a banned substance.
    There are some more details in the article here.

    I put that on my elbows for psoriasis. It's a thick cream that's clear in color. If someone were to sit in a armchair like at a movie theatre after me, there would certainly be trace elements and they could come into contact with it. Bummer for Freddy if he's clean.

    Someone on twitter said Galvis is trying to find the contact number for Braun's courier.
