The Major Leagues have just informed that the Minnesota Twins starting shortstop, Jorge Polanco, has been suspended after he tested positive during a drugs-control test. The substance found on Polanco's body is, according to several reports, Stanozol, which is a performance-enhancing drug banned by the League.

According to an MLB's statement, Polanco will be suspended for 80 games, as the Dominican will not appeal the League's decision, as the player said in a press release via social media, which part of it reads:
I did not intentionally consume this steroid... Every bone in my body wants to appeal this suspension but out of respect for the entire Twins organization, I have decided to withdraw my request to appeal.
Polanco had a decent 2017 season, as he played in 133 games and recorded a batting average of .256, slamming 13 homers and 74 RBI's.
