The Royals say their suspension of minor leaguer Kit Pellow has nothing to do with his comments in a recent Sports Illustrated article. Pellow told the magazine that he has witnessed players using steroids on their way through the Royals’ system. General manager Allard Baird says he wants to know if players are using steroids, but says the suspension is a result of an altercation between Pellow and manager John Mizerock. Pellow was hitting .251 with 22 homers as a first baseman in Omaha.
