Perez Suspended 80 Games

Detroit Tigers infielder Neifi Perez has been suspended for 80 games after testing positive a third time for a banned stimulant.

Perez was suspended for 25 games on July sixth when he tested positive for a second time. Under baseball's labor contract, a player who tests positive for the first time is sent for counseling.

Perez has been the only player suspended for stimulants since baseball banned them before the start of the current campaign.
