Report: Jenrry Mejia's second positive test came during first suspension

Thursday July 30th, 2015

New York Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia reportedly tested positive for performance enhancing drugs a second time while serving his first suspension by MLB, according to ESPN's T.J. Quinn.

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.
