Diamondbacks prospect suspended 120 games

Major League Baseball suspended Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Jose Valdez 120 games after he tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

His positive test for Stanozolol is the second violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program for Valdez, whose suspension without pay will begin with the start of the 2023 season.

Valdez received a 60-game suspension on Feb. 4, 2022, after a positive test for the same substance.

Valdez, 21, is currently on the roster of Arizona’s Dominican Summer League team but hasn’t pitched since 2021.
