Braves' McKirahan suspended 80 games for positive drug test

ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Braves reliever Andrew McKirahan was suspended for 80 games Monday following a positive test for a banned substance under Major League Baseball's drug program.

McKirahan was the fifth big league pitcher in 25 days disciplined for using performance-enhancing drugs. He was cited for Ipamorelin, which releases growth hormone.

Braves president of baseball operations John Hart said McKirahan did not say how he took the banned drug.
