Inside Baseball: Unwanted break gives Geltz new outlook - World News Report

When Durham Bulls reliever Steve Geltz saw me waiting for him at his locker a couple of days ago in Coca-Cola Field, he knew what questions were coming. And give full marks to the Wilson High and University at Buffalo product: He made a big mistake in the offseason and paid a major price, but he’s determined to learn from it.

...

Geltz just returned to the Durham lineup on June 26 after serving a 50-game suspension from the Commissioner’s Office due to a second positive test for a "drug of abuse" under the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. He admitted to this corner the suspension was for offseason recreational use of marijuana.
