Indians reliever Clase suspended 80 games for PED violation

CLEVELAND (AP) Whenever the Cleveland Indians finally get to start their season they won't have reliever Emmanuel Clase.

The hard-throwing right-hander was suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball on Friday for testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug.

Clase was the biggest acquisition by Cleveland in the big offseason trade that sent two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber to the Texas Rangers. The commissioner's office said the 22-year-old Clase tested positive for Boldenone, an anabolic steroid.
