The commissioner's office just officially announced that The New York Yankees RHP Sergi Mitre has been found to have ingested the anabolic steroid androstenedione. Mitre claims to have unknowingly taken the steroid with a nutritional supplement he had purchased at a GNC. When asked to comment on Mitre's suspension, Brian Cashman said "Who the hell is Sergio Mitre? What's that? He's a Yankee? No, that can't be true. Good one, fellas, but you're going to have to try harder to pull a fast one on the Cash".
Sergio Mitre was signed by the Yankees in November to a split contract that will pay him $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster.
