30-year old lefty swinging 1B Mike Jacobs has been suspended for 50 games due to testing positive for HGH. The Rockies then released him as he was done for the 2011 season anyway due to the suspension. Jacobs played in 117 games in AAA-ball this year for the Rockies and he was 128 for 429 (.298 avg, .910 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 23 homers, 97 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He has played in 556 games in his first six years in the majors and he is 489 of 1,930 (.253 avg, .787 OPS) with 244 runs scored, 100 homers, 310 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. It seems as if Jacobs was willing to do whatever it took to get back to the majors. He was only caught because he was in the minors, which tests for HGH.
