A 100-game suspension was handed down by the Major League Baseball (MLB) to Detroit Tiger’s pitcher Cesar Carrillo on Friday, March 15, 2013.

Officials say that Carrillo was suspended without pay for his violation of the Minor League’s Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The 28-year-old right-hander was one of several baseball players linked to the Biogenesis issue.

An article published by the Miami New Times said that Biogenesis is an anti-aging clinic based in South Florida. It was reportedly involved in providing performance-enhancing medication to MLB players.

Reports say that Carrillo, who attended the University of Miami, was Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun’s road roommate for three years.

A baseball investigation was reportedly centered on several former Miami players mentioned in the Biogenesis documents. Among those under scrutiny are Carrillo, Braun and San Diego Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal.

Last November, the league suspended Grandal for 50-games due to high levels of testosterone.
