He was released by the Rockies because of this. (http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/breaking/chi-jacobs-first-to-be-suspended-by-mlb-for-positive-hgh-test-20110818,0,4525450.story)

Testing for for HGH at the MLB level will be one of the hot points of the next collective bargaining agreement, according to many baseball people.

I wonder if Jacobs was busted because he didn't know that they tested for HGH in the minor leagues? He might have incorrectly assumed that the drug testing rules, and what they actually test for, were the same in the minors as they are in the majors.

I wonder how many major leaguers would fail this test.
