Marlins 2B Dee Gordon suspended 80 games after PEDs violation

Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon has been suspended 80 games without pay for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drug policy, the league said early Friday.

The ban is effectively immediately.

The speedy second baseman tested positive for exogenous testosterone and clostebol, performance-enhancing substances, MLB said.

A two-time All-Star, he won the NL batting title last year, when he hit .333 to go with 58 steals and 88 runs scored for the Marlins. Gordon, 28, is in his sixth season in the majors. He’s made two All-Star teams and won the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards at second base last year.

The news was announced soon after the Marlins wrapped up a 5-3 road victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, which completed a four-game sweep. Gordon had a key hit from the leadoff spot, going 1-for-4 with a run scored
