(CINCINNATI, OH) - Cincinnati Reds Pitcher Edinson Volquez has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

The 26-year-old former all-star is recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery and was not expected to rejoin the Reds until mid-summer at the earliest.

He can serve the suspension while he continues to rehabilitate the elbow injury.

Volquez released a statement saying he received a prescription in his native Dominican Republic for a drug as he tries to start a family with his wife.

The drug is on Major League Baseball's banned list.

He says he will not challenge the suspension, which will begin immediately.
