With testimony from Tony Bosch, the founder of Biogenesis of America, league officials reportedly believe they will have the information necessary to bring suspensions against the players. The MLB commissioner’s office may pursue 100-game suspensions for each of the accused players, the penalty for a second doping offense, a source close to the investigation told ESPN. According to the source, the league considers the player's contact with Bosch as his first offense, and any previous statement in which the player denied using PEDs or having a connection to Biogenesis as a second offense. Bosch and his attorneys have yet to publicly comment on the new report.
Since most of his production came as a designated hitter, Martinez will probably continue to get a little less consideration for the Hall of Fame. He is still the only designated hitter to ever win a batting title (hit .356 in 1999) and some of his numbers, like his ridiculous .479 on base percentage in 1995, are worthy of more consideration. Martinez finished his career with 1,219 runs, 1,261 RBI, 514 doubles and 309 home runs to go along with his very respectable .312 batting average. He scored 121 runs scored in two different seasons and had a season with 145 RBI in which he also clubbed 37 home runs. Martinez finished his career with a hard to overlook .418 on base percentage and equally impressive .515 slugging percentage.
