Henry Owens Suspended 50 Games
For using a “performance enhancing substance”. Really.
You may have forgotten Henry Owens who was the other stud pitcher came to the Marlins in that awesome Vargas trade. While recovering from season ending shoulder surgery, it seems that he failed a drug test. We may still find out more of this later but for now, don’t bet on seeing him in the Majors anytime soon.
Update: Quote from the Sun-Sentinel:
Owens said: “I made a mistake. I apologize. Now I have to deal with the consequences and work hard to get through this situation.”
The Marlins issued the following statement: “We are disappointed that Henry Owens received a positive test, and fully endorse the discipline outlined in the MLB policy. We will continue to work with and educate our players to help prevent any further violations.”
