Cubs prospect suspended 100 games for 3rd failed drug test
Jayne Kamin Oncea - USA Today Sports
Cubs Triple-A pitcher David Garner has been suspended for 100 games for a positive drug test on Thursday according to the league office.
This is the THIRD time that Garner has been suspended for a 'drug of abuse' as this is not a performance-enhancing drug but rather a positive test for drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, etc.
In 2017, Garner had a 2-2 record with a 2.61 ERA in 26 games at Double-A Tennessee. In five minor-league seasons, he is 11-13 with a 4.07 ERA. He was a seventh-round draft pick in 2013.
During four appearances this spring training as a non-roster invitee, he pitched 3.2 innings and gave up four runs.
