Blue Jays Prospect Receives 80 Game PED Ban

RHP Luis Quiñones, who was lights out in the Vancouver bullpen this year, received an 80 game ban today for a positive test for Nandrolone, a steroid which aids recovery, as well as building muscle by producing protein.

Quiñones, a 34th round find out of Juco power San Jacinto last June, fanned 47 in 30 innings this season. He combined an ability to spot his mid-90s fastball to both sides of the plate, a bit of deception in his delivery, and a late breaking slider to mostly overmatch NWL hitters.

Since he was on Lansing’s roster, Quiñones’ 2020 debut will not occur until late June at the earliest.
