According to MiLB.com, Clomiphene "is a synthetic fertility drug that is prescribed to women to induce ovulation. It's been linked to male athletes because it helps block the effects of estrogen and promotes the natural production of testosterone."
As if the Brewers haven't had enough issues with their players disappointing them.
Brock becomes the 55th player in 2013 suspended for violating the Minor League drug program. He's also the second AZL Brewer to get caught. Left-handed pitcher Will West was suspended for 50 games in early August for his second violation.
A two-way player at Glendale, Brock batted .318 with three home runs and 30 RBI in 54 games. On the mound, he posted a 3.12 ERA in 8 2/3 innings.
Since joining the Rookie Level club, Brock has been strictly a pitcher, and has put together some respectable numbers. Currently 0-1, he has a sparkling 2.84 ERA in 12 2/3 innings. He's only walked two batters while striking out three.
Only time will tell how much he can improve once he returns from suspension. Are his numbers inflated due to the extra boost, or will they get better? Let's chalk this up to an immature mistake.
Hopefully the next time Brock makes news it's because he performing on the field not because of lab created extras.
