Apparently he will be ineligible for the postseason should they make it.
Yeah, this is the case with any in-season suspension, happened with Abraham Almonte and the Indians last year.

Nandrolone is same stuff Clemens was supposedly injected with by McNamee in 2000, isn't/wasn't it? From what I looked up, seems it peaked around the turn of the millenium, although we've had a few somewhat recent MiLB suspensions have popped up with it (Alfredo Zambrano 2010, Derrick Bernard 2014). Medically/legally it's not used much these days but was for those with cancer, AIDS, burns, but also cornea healing, according to Hemmersbasch and Große (2009).

Yup. Full blown anabolic steroids. What an idiot.
