Former Brooklyn Cyclone, and New York Mets second base prospect, Daniel Muno, was suspended by Major League Baseball for 50 games upon testing positive for PEDs/Banned Substances.
New York Mets Minor League second baseman Daniel Muno has received a 50-game suspension after testing positive for a metabolite of Drostanolone. The suspension of Muno, who is currently on the roster of Single-A St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League, will be effective immediately.
As a season ticket holder of the Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball Club, and being a Brooklyn native, I have an untethered affinity from the Mets, for any current or former Cyclones player. Many of the present Flushing Mets have passed through Brooklyn. So, I feel fortunate with regards to being able to see many Mets’ prospects before most of the greater scope of Mets’ Fans do.
In a manner of speaking, the Brooklyn Cyclones are my team. They are Brooklyn. And this twelve year old club which plays in my backyard, has become a very important part of my Summers in the Borough of Kings. So it wounds me to hear of this development.
In 2011, Danny Muno (pictured #16 with Fresno State Bulldogs) batted .355 for the Cyclones in fifty-four games played. The twenty-three year old’s career is now in question, and his future in doubt. I would be less upset by this news had this Mets’ prospect bypassed my Boardwalk Bombers Club of Coney Island.
