Meszaros (others?) suspended

Via the MiLB transactions page, we find that Round Rock pitcher Danny Meszaros has been suspended. We have made contact with the Express' Communications Department. More as details come available.

Note: We were referred to the Astros PR department. Stay tuned.

Update: Getting an unconfirmed report that potentially Jon Fixler and Marcos Cabral were also suspended.

Further Update: The Pacific Coast League's transactions page has the status changed to Meszaros placed on Temporarily Inactive List.

This is interesting. Hold, please.

They were suspended for using an illegal substance.

what about the suspension of Chris Blazek? I never saw it announced why he was suspended.

Anonymous: Shoot me an email at astroscounty@hotmail.com and let's chat. (That couldn't have been a more vague invitation).

Larry: Good question re: Blazek. He hasn't pitched in a game since July 16, and his status is still "Suspended." That's a longer span than just for buzzing a guy with a fastball.

yes there is more to that story it appears... don't think a brushback fastball would keep him out this long
