Mets righthander Lino Urdaneta was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, the office of the commissioner of baseball announced today
Urdaneta, 27, has spent much of the season with Triple-A New Orleans, but received a brief big league callup in early May when Orlando Hernandez went on the disabled list. Urdaneta also pitched for the Tigers in 2004, though he didnâ€™t record an out.
Signed by the Dodgers out of Venezuela in 1996, Urdaneta was taken by the Tigers from the Indians in the 2003 major league Rule 5 draft. The Indians had signed him just a month prior. He’s gone 29-32, 4.01 with 292-162 strikeouts-walks in 476 minor league innings coming into the year.
