Until this, the Nats were one of only 5 clubs that had never had a PED suspension.

Does this free up a space on the 40 man roster until he's eligible to return?

What sucks the most if that if he comes back and plays well in the second half he still can’t play in the playoffs.

I wonder if the substance is Clenbuterol?  There have been a tremendous number of inadvertent pops on that due to tainted meat.  This was the substance that led to Alberto Contador's loss of his Giro and a Tour title when they CAS reversed the Spanish drug agency's exoneration because they could not prove it was from the Cape Verdean meat.  On the other hand, half of Mexico's youth soccer team popped but were able to get their suspension revoked.

Any PED suspension makes a player ineligible to play in the postseason, regardless of whether their suspension is finished or not.

From the medical authority known as Wiki:

Boldenone is marketed as a veterinary drug known as boldenone undecylenate (a derivative of boldenone). There are many known cases of doping in sports with boldenone by professional athletes.

Uh, no. Boldenone is naturally occurring, but it's also used in synthetic steroids. It's legal to have in your system, but only to a certain amount. It can also be created as a result of synthetic testosterone treatment.

Also, I think there is a worm or insect that makes it to ward of predators.
