MLB News: MLB Reports Over 10,000 Drug Tests Performed Since 2007

Steroids-needles_crop_340x234 Major League Baseball is serious about eliminating performance enhancing drugs from the game. If you doubt that, consider this. MLB and the players association released a statement that they have performed 10,955 drug tests since 2007.

Every player on ever team's 40 man roster gets tested randomly. In 2008, 3,486 tests were performed. In 2009, there were 3,722 tests. In 2010 3,747 tests were given. Included in this number were offseason tests. There were 122 last offseason and 138 this offseason. 

While I am sure someone will find a way to take something that will allude the tests, this proactive approach by MLB will help eliminate most PED use in the game.
