"Dominican players are getting popped at more than three times their representation in the baseball population. They are responsible for almost all the repeat offenses as well -- six of eight, with Dominican Jennry Mejia the only player to test positive three times. They have been responsible for 14 of the last 18 suspensions, repeaters included, since 2018."
