Major League Baseball announced on Wednesday that Cardinals minor league pitcher Andrew Pierce has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for an amphetamine. The positive test is a violation of the Minor League Drug and Prevention Program.

Pierce, an eighth-round pick from the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, will serve his suspension at the start of the 2014 season. He pitched in 12 games for State College last summer after signing a $10,000 bonus with the organization. Pierce allowed 10 earned runs on 43 hits in 42 2/3 innings. He struck out 36 and walked seven.

isn’t this Peralta’s drug of choice?

It was reported that J. Peralta, along with about 10 other MLB players who are also still playing ball and being paid exorbitant amounts of fan-spent money, purchased Human Growth Hormone which is sold in a kit of injections that are used over a period of time. HGH increases the size and number of muscle cells which in turn increase the muscle memory, strength, and stamina for up to ten years time.

It was not only reported, the report turned out to be true. Peralta admitted to “the mistake” after he and the others were caught committing the crime of illegally purchasing HGH. Forgiveness is much easier to receive than permission. Soon there will be permission since what is accepted, whether right or wrong, will eventually be embraced.
