Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo was suspended for 80 games on Thursday by Major League Baseball after testing positive for the banned performance-enhancing substance Erythropoietin (EPO). The 31-year-old Dominican, batting .267 with 12 runs scored, 15 runs batted in and six home runs this season, would be eligible to return for the White Sox in late August. “The Chicago White Sox were saddened and disappointed to learn of the suspension of catcher Welington Castillo for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program,” team general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement.
