Galvis is currently on the disabled list with a back injury and will begin serving his suspension immediately. MLB said Galvis tested positive for a metabolite of Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance.
“A trace amount of a banned substance — 80 parts in a trillion — was detected in my urine sample,” Galvis said in a statement. “I am extremely disappointed in what has transpired. I cannot understand how even this tiny particle of a banned substance got into my body.
“I have not and never would knowingly use anything illegal to enhance my performance. I have always tried to follow the team’s strength and conditioning methods, listen to the trainers, work out hard and eat right. Unfortunately, the rules are the rules and I will be suspended.”
Everyone loved Freddy after he got a big hit when the “Freddy!” “Freddy!” chants broke out. This would be devastating if he could actually hit major league pitching. He’s hitting .226 with an OBP of .254. Chase Utley, please come back.
