Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis was suspended for 50 games after testing positive for a performance enhancing drug, the Office of the Commissioner announced announced on Tuesday.
Galvis tested positive for a metabolite of Clostebol.
“I’d like to apologize to my all my fans, especially here in Philadelphia and back home in Venezuela, to my teammates and to the Phillies organization,” Galvis said. “I am looking forward to putting this behind me, rehabilitating my back and returning to the Phillies as soon as possible to try to help them win another World Series.”
Glavis went on to say that a trace amount of the substance was found and that he could not understand how it got there.
Galvis is currently injured and has to wear a back brace, so he will likely miss most of the suspension anyway.
