Catcher Ronny Paulino hasn't played in the majors since 2012 and is currently with the Tigers as a minor leaguer. Wednesday, Major League Baseball announced that he has been suspended for 100 games as a result of testing positive for exogenous Testosterone.

This is Paulino's second offense, hence the 100-game ban instead of 50.

In parts of eight MLB seasons, Paulino has hit .272/.324/.376 (85 OPS+) with the Pirates, Marlins, Mets and Orioles.

Paulino, 32, will begin serving his suspension at the beginning of the season for the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens.
