Minnesota Twins right-hander Michael Pineda has been suspended 60 games without pay after testing positive for Hydrochlorothiazid in violation of MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Pineda originally got an 80-game suspension, but it was reduced to 60 on appeal, as a compelling case was made that the banned diuretic he used was not a masking agent for PEDs, a source told ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Pineda made 26 starts this season, going 11-5 with a 4.01 ERA.
