    MLB players warned not to use Deer Antler spray

    From ESPN.com:

    MLB players have been issued a warning over the use of deer-antler spray, a substance administered under the tongue that includes a banned chemical known for its muscle-building and fat-cutting effects, SI.com has reported.

    Players had felt free to use the spray at nearly no risk until the warning was sent last week by the league, the report said. 
     In its warning, issued in reaction to reports from the drug-testing industry, MLB requested players not use the spray because it contained "potentially contaminated nutritional supplements" and had been added to the league's cautionary list of products.

    The warning was not issued because the spray includes the banned chemical, SI.com reported.

    IGF-1, or insulin-like growth factor, can't be detected in the urine tests used by baseball, and the players' association has not come to an agreement with MLB on blood testing.

    According to the report, scientists discovered IGF-1 in the velvet of immature deer antlers and players have been using it as an alternative to steroids.

    The chemical is considered a performance-enhancer and its use is prohibited by baseball and the World Anti-Doping Agency, among other governing bodies. IGF-1 is said to mediate the level of human growth hormone in the body, SI.com reported.

    MLB said in its warning that the spray can cause players to test positive for the banned steroid methyltestosterone, though it is not listed as an ingredient, the report said.

    Among the benefits highlighted by manufacturers of the spray are "anabolic or growth stimulation," "athletic performance" and "muscular strength and endurance."

    These guys are bigger @-holes than I imagined.

    Even eye corrective laser surgery. Imagine what Jim Rice would have done if that were available to him years ago.

    Does this mean anything in regard to the deer antler sign used by the Rangers, or just a weird coincidence?

    Baby deer do not have antlers. If they did, births would be difficult

    MLBPA is doing a video on bullying against PED users with an RX from Dr. Galea. Lowrie is leading the Sox effort and doing a college paper on the abuse players are unfairly taking.

    hgh is likey for both Crawford and Bellsbury. No test for it, career averages and career year do not add up. Tiger Woods used Dr. Galea for medical attention, but has dropped a big notch since Dr. Galea is now a felon.

    I wonder if the "Deer Antler Spray" was marketed by Joe Buck and Rob Deer.
