    Starling Marte, in a statement, says "neglect and lack of knowledge" led to PED suspension. Nandrolone is an injection-only steroid. Uh-huh.

    If the Pirates were to make the playoffs, Marte would also be ineligible for them...

    Is that a new(er) rule?

    It must be. I've never heard of that before.

    I believe Melky Cabrera was eligible to return for the postseason after serving his suspension for PEDS several years ago. His team (Giants?) decided not to activate him, but he was eligible for postseason play as I recall.

    It was part of the agreement from 2014.

    Thanks. Didn't know that. Have any players missed the playoffs because of it?

    I don't think anyone of any consequence. Marlon Byrd would have if he hadn't retired.
