Rays Disappointed In Drug Suspensions
Earlier this week minor leaguer David Wendt became the seventh Rays player to be suspended for a positive drug test since the beginning of 2012, so naturally Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune asked executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman for a comment on that high total:
Obviously were disappointed in the number of suspensions in our organization. We have to remember that these are young kids, and as much as you try to educate them, mistakes will happen. The important part is that they learn from them. We will tolerate guys making mistakes. Well talk through it again, and its incumbent upon them to learn from their mistakes and make sure that it doesnt happen again.
