LA Times Reports No HCG in Manny Ramirez Drug Test

with one comment

Manny Ramirez DHEA

The LA Times is reporting today that MLB has bungled the suspension of Manny Ramirez because no HCG was found in Manny’s system; HCG was the illegal substance that MLB had originally claimed Ramirez tested positive for, which warranted Manny’s suspensionMLB’s logic for the suspension was that Manny Ramirez had a prescription for HGC and suspended him on this basis without yet having received the drug test results.

Nonetheless, Manny is not out of the clear.  The LA Times is also reporting that Manny Ramirez had between 4 to 10 times the normal amounts of testosterone in his system.  The source that gave the LA Times all the info is also claiming that the testosterone is not natural, but rather, synthetic.  If this is in fact the case, the only possibility of synthetic testosterone at that level in Manny Ramirez system would undoubtedly point to steroids use.

However, the LA Times is also reporting that Manny will argue that the elevated levels of testosterone were due to DHEADHEA is considered an illegal substance by the World Anti-Doping Agency; however, DHEA is not considered an illegal substance by MLB, which theoretically would put Manny Ramirez in the clear.  Manny Ramirez is to meet with the Dodgersmanger Joe Torre in Miami this weekend.
