Kansas City Royals outfielder Jorge Bonifacio has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

The commissioner’s office made the announcement this weekend. 

Bonifacio was banned after a positive test for Boldenone. The ban will begin on opening day.

 “It really kind of made me sick to my stomach,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.  

The 24-year-old Bonifacio made his major league debut last season, hitting .255 with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs in 113 game 


Bonifacio is the fourth player suspended this year under the major league drug program. Houston pitcher Dean Deetz, Washington catcher Raudy Read and Pittsburgh pitcher Nik Turley previously were penalized.
