Kansas City Royals infielder Raul A. Mondesi and minor league pitchers Logan Lombana and Clinton Hollon were suspended by the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball for violating the drug prevention and treatment program.
Mondesi, who made his major league debut in a World Series game last year, was suspended for 50 games for using the banned substance Clenbuterol. His original 80-game suspension was reduced when he proved that he took a cold medicine with the substance.
The 20-year-old Mondesi, the son of former major leaguer Raul Mondesi, is considered one of the franchise’s top prospects and a member of the 40-man roster.
Lombana, a right-hander in the Minnesota Twins’ organization, was suspended for 80 games without pay after a positive test for Ibutamoren, a performance-enhancing substance. Lombana has appeared in seven games for Class A Cedar Rapids this season and is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 16 innings.
Hollon, a right-hander in the low minor leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays, received a 50-game suspension without pay after a second positive test for a drug of abuse.
