Tigers' Carrillo, linked to report, banned for 100
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 15, 2013
Carrillo's suspension is effective at the start of the season. It could be that there's enough overwhelming evidence to determine Carrillo's involvement, but there's also speculation it could stem from Carrillo failing to cooperate in MLB's investigation. The Detroit Tigers say minor league right-hander Cesar Carrillo has been suspended 100 games for violating baseball's minor league drug prevention and treatment program. Baseball enjoys greater jurisdiction over minor leaguers like Carrillo than major leaguers who are protected by the players’ union. But this officially marks the first major fallout since the Miami New Times first reported the story in January, and it could be an indication of things to come for others named in the documents, particularly minor leaguers not currently on a 40-man roster.
