Later that season, he was suspended for 10 days for testing positive for the potent anabolic steroid stanozolol.
Here's something I bet you never thought you'd hear: Rafael Palmeiro, who famously testified to Congress in March of 2005 that he never used steroids before getting suspended in August of 2005 for using steroids, is considering an Major League Baseball comeback at the ripe age of 53.
That is entirely because Palmeiro has been labeled a steroid user, something he has strongly denied.
The former Ranger had two separate stints with Texas during his career that spanned two decades. A 53-year-old trying to hit a Clayton Kershaw curveball either will be hysterically amusing or, if he can actually do it, simply fantastic.
So should Palmeiro attempt a comeback to baseball? Regardless, Orioles general manager Dan Duquette told The Athletic that Palmeiro's comeback would be an "interesting story", adding, "It's like tying your shoes ..."
But the latter of the two reasons listed above feels like the more important one to Palmeiro. A return may offer an opportunity for Palmeiro to clear his name.
Julio Franco became the oldest regular player in the league when he played 55 games for the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets in 2007 at the age of 49, hitting.222/.321/.289 with a home run and 16 RBI.
None of that matters, though.
The oldest position player in the majors in 2017 was Ichiro Suzuki at 43. His accomplishments are tarnished by the failed drug test of 2005, and he has no business playing in a league that is still recovering from the steroid era. Palmeiro is 100 percent confident he can return to baseball and make an impact.
