Report: A-Rod tested positive for stimulants in ’06


New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez tested positive for stimulants in 2006, according to the New York Times.

Rodriguez was not publicly identified for failing the test because players face suspensions for banned substances only if they test positive more than once.

Rodriguez is appealing a 211-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s drug policy.
