Major League Baseball has tabbed Sandy Alderson to reform its operations in the Dominican Republic, and one of his charges will be the help reduce the number of performance-enhancing drug suspensions among players there. More evidence of the problem continues to emerge with two more suspensions of Dominican players Thursday: Indians pitcher Jeffry Cleto and Cubs outfielder Gregorio Robles, both on rosters in the Rookie-level Dominican Summer League.
Cleto was suspended for the first 50 games of 2010 after testing positive for Stanozolol. Robles, a switch-hitter, was suspended for 100 games for testing positive a second time for the same drug.
