Ex-MLB pitcher tests positive for doping in SKorea

Ex-MLB pitcher tests positive for doping in SKorea

A former Major League Baseball pitcher from the Dominican Republic has tested positive for doping in South Korea, a news report claims.
Ricardo Rodriguez, who played briefly with South Korea's Kia Tigers, tested positive in February during spring training. All 16 foreign players in the league were tested at the time, Yonhap news agency reported, citing the KBO.
The KBO did not identify the substance Rodriguez had tested positive for, Yonhap reported.
Yonhap said Rodriguez left South Korea's pro league because of injury. It was unclear if he remained in the country.
Rodriguez, formerly of the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers, signed with Kia early this year but left the team last month after hurting his elbow.
