Dodgers reliever Josh Ravin has been suspended 80 games for using performance enhancing drugs.
Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Josh Ravin has been suspended 80 games for violating Major League Baseball’s performance enhancing drug policy, the team announced Monday.
Ravin, who was on the 60-day disabled list after sustaining a broken arm in a February car accident, tested positive for a banned peptide.
The 28-year-old played in nine games as a reliever for the Dodgers last season, his first in the majors. He went 2–1 with a 6.75 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 9 1/3 innings in 2015.
Ravin played the majority of his 10-season professional career in the minor league systems of the Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds.
Ravin’s suspension is effective immediately.
