Mariners' Santiago banned 80 games for positive drug test

NEW YORK (AP) Turns out Hector Santiago was using more than sticky stuff.

The Seattle Mariners pitcher was suspended for 80 games Thursday by Major League Baseball following a positive test for external testosterone, exactly one month after he was banned for 10 games when he became the first player penalized under the sport's crackdown on grip-enhancing substances.

While the sticky substance penalty was with pay, the suspension under MLB's drug program will cost him about half his $700,000 major league salary.
