The drug test that resulted in a 162-game suspension was conducted during Mejia's original suspension.
Mejia's second positive test announcement comes just 21 days after he was activated and rejoined the team. On Tuesday, MLB announced that Mejia tested positive for Stanozolol and Boldenone, two easily detectable drugs. Mejia served his first 80-game suspension for testing positive for Stanozolol.
Mejia is the second player to receive a 162-game suspension from MLB for performance enhancing drugs. Alex Rodriguez served a 162-game suspension and missed the 2014 season.
