Michael Pineda suspended for 60 games for drug violation

Michael Pineda has been suspended for 60 games for a drug violation, according to Jeff Passan.

Fantasy Impact

Although this type of suspension is usually 80 games, Pineda reportedly made a compelling case that the banned diuretic he used was not a masking agent and, therefore, his ban was lowered to 60 games on appeal. Regardless, Pineda's season is over, which is a huge blow for the contending Twins. It's unclear who will take his spot in the rotation, but Pineda can be dropped in all formats.
