Astros DSL prospect popped for PEDs

Jorge Arangure, Jr says that DSL Astros prospect Richard Rodriguez has been suspended 50 games for PED use.

Rodriguez is a 20-year old, 6'4" 185lb RHP, and is 2-1 in five starts for the DSL Astros, with a 2.00 ERA/1.06 WHIP.

Rodriguez tested positive for metabolites of stanozolol, according to the Washington Post.

Rodriguez is the third Astros prospect to get suspended for PED use (Felix Ramirez and Gabriel Garcia, who pitched last night) in the last 13 months.
