Marte Suspended After Testing Positive For PED’s




Starling Marte has been suspended 80 games after he violated the league’s Joint Drug Agreement. He tested positive for nandrolone, a performance enhancing substance.

This obviously is a huge setback for the Pirates. The Pirates good bring up Austin Meadows, Danny Ortiz, or Jose Osuna. Regardless of who they choose to go with, losing Marte is a major setback.

It will be interesting to see if the Pirates decide to move McCutchen back to centerfield, or if they try Polanco.
