If he's not there, he can't be a distraction.

How
long ago did the Pirates know he failed a test and was likely to be suspended?

I would assume they knew for a little while and he had to fail more than one test to get suspended right? I know there was a new CBA recently that went in to effect but I didn't see the PED changes

Matte has used his entire professional life. I saw him when he was with WV back in 2010, and the guy looked jacked, bigger than the rest.

He had no incentive o be using this year, midway through a long extension and not coming off a significant injury.

He's used since day one.

Could be like the A-Rod in Texas story where he felt pressure to live up to his contract/expectations

Just a guess but they probably knew about the start of the season.

From what they were saying on the radio, the first one gets you 80 games. However, I have learned not to put too much faith in what sports talk radio guys say.

Just listening to other players, PED use among Latin American players is pretty common. They cycle up at the end of the season and cycle down before spring training starts.

According to Dejan, Marte knew about the first failed test shortly after the WBC. And reportedly failed a second at some point during spring training (but not the test for the WBC). And if Marte knew, that means MLB and the MLBPA both knew, because they get notified of the positive test before the player does. Which means it is VERY likely that the Pirates knew before the beginning of the regular season.

I don't doubt any of that. I know the process takes some time. Players, the union, and the team know well in advance of the official announcement.

There has not been a police investigation to prove otherwise, so it must be true!
