FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) About a month ago, Minnesota Twins shortstop Jorge Polanco learned he had tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
The news of his 80-game suspension, including ineligibility for postseason play, hit the Twins hard on Sunday after their exhibition game.
"We don't want it in our game. We want a clean game. It sometimes is disappointing in seeing guys still trying to use performance-enhancing drugs," second baseman Brian Dozier said on Monday as the Twins started their final full week of spring training. "But at the same time, when it comes to a guy on my team, that's my brother. He needs love right now. That's the only thing I'm really worried about."
