In Mejia’s doping test, stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance, was detected. He became the first player in the major leagues this season to be disciplined for using a banned substance.
This is not the first time Mejia has taken banned substances. He previously tested positive for stanozolol in May 2022 and was suspended for 80 games.
Mejia, who became a big leaguer in 2021, appeared in a total of 28 major league games and recorded 2 wins, 7 losses, and an ERA of 8.32. He appeared in 9 games this season and recorded 1 win and an ERA of 5.56.
Mejia, who was placed on the injured list last month due to shoulder pain, was moved to the 60-day injured list last week.
With this severe punishment, the day when Mejia will step onto the major league stage again is far away.
