27-year old lefty reliever Antonio Bastardo has been suspended for the next 50 games by Major League Baseball for his involvement with the Biogenesis Lab in Miami. Bastardo pitched in 48 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 3-2 with 2 saves, a 2.32 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Bastardo has now pitched in 208 games (5 starts) in his first five years with the Phillies and he is 15-11 with 11 saves, a 3.65 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Bastardo has given up 146 hits and 91 walks while whiffing 243 batters in his first 195 innings in the majors, and with the exception of the walks….those are impressive numbers. This is a HUGE blow to the Phillies’ pen for the rest of the 2013 season.
