McCutchen Addresses “Steroid” Suspension

In an article by Journal News beat writer Peter Abraham, Trenton Thunder pitcher Dan McCutchen goes into detail regarding the confusion about his 50 game suspension in 2006.

In fact, his supposed steroids suspension wasn’t for steroids at all…

“Yes, McCutchen had been suspended for 50 games when he tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance during his first year in the minor leagues. But it was for taking Adderall, a drug his doctor had prescribed for attention deficit disorder. McCutchen’s mistake was not filing a copy of the prescription with the Yankees after he signed.”

It seems he doesn’t know yet whether he’ll be at Trenton or Scranton this year, but if he does return to the Thunder, McCutchen would be a prime candidate to get the nod on Opening Night in Binghamton.

“At my age, I need to be on the fast track,” he said. “But whether I started the year at Double-A or Triple-A, I know I’m close to the majors.

“I’ve gone through too much already not to keep pushing and get there.”
