Hosmer Fails PED Test; Out 80 Games

Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer tested positive for the use of Preformance Enhancing Drug. Under the MLB Joint Drug Agreement Hosmer will be suspended 80 games.
Agent Scott Boras said Hosmer will appeal his suspension; calling the notion of a failed test “outrageous and potentially damaging to [Hosmers] reputation.” When asked how this positive test would impact Hosmer’s upcoming free agency Boras added, “Eric will break the bank.”
