The Minnesota Twins offered no further comment Friday about Fort Myers Miracle outfielder Michael Harrington’s 50-game suspension for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment policy.
The Miracle said their parent club would likely not comment until the suspension is over, and Twins Senior Director of the Minor Leagues Jim Rantz did not return a message left on Friday.
The 24-year-old Harrington is eligible to return from his suspension on July 14 when the Miracle take on Daytona on the road. His first game back at Hammond Stadium would be July 18 against Lakeland.
The 6-foot, 200-pound left-handed hitter tested positive for Andarine, a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator (SARM) that is believed to provide the results of traditional steroids with fewer side effects.
