Jenrry Mejia gets permanent ban for 3rd positive PED test

Adam Rubin

NEW YORK -- New York Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia made baseball history Friday, becoming the first player to be permanently suspended by Major League Baseball for performance-enhancing drug use.

MLB announced the suspension Friday, saying that Mejia tested positive for Boldenone and that the right-hander also is permanently suspended from playing minor league baseball.

It marked the 26-year-old Mejia's third positive PED test in the past calendar year, triggering the expulsion from baseball.

Mejia may apply to commissioner Rob Manfred for reinstatement in one year, but would have to sit out a minimum of two years before being able to pitch again in the majors. He had been working as a starting pitcher in the Dominican Republic with Licey during winter ball.

Mejia becomes the first major or minor league player ever to receive a permanent suspension under MLB's drug program. Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton was suspended multiple times between 2003 and 2005 for drugs of abuse, but none of his suspensions ever were deemed "permanent."
