Ex-Met Jacobs suspended
August, 18, 2011
By Adam Rubin | ESPNNewYork.com
Jacobs, 30, was hitting .298 with 23 homers and 97 RBIs in 117 games for Triple-A Colorado Springs.
ESPN colleagues note:
Jacobs is the first North American professional athlete to test positive for HGH, according to the commissioner's office. The only other professional athlete to test positive for HGH was English rugby player Terry Newton. There have been previous suspensions of players for being caught purchasing, or possessing, HGH. But this is the first for a positive blood test. The minor leagues began administering this blood test in July of 2010. There is no HGH testing in the major leaguers, although it's being discussed at the bargaining table during the current labor talks.
