Just back from an 80-game drug suspension, New York Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia has been banned for an additional 162 games following a positive test for Stanozolol and Boldenone.

Mejia was suspended April 11 following a positive test for Stanozolol and said in a statement then ''I can honestly say I have no idea how a banned substance ended up in my system.''

He returned July 12 and was 1-0 in seven games, pitching 7 1/3 scoreless innings. Because of the first suspension, he would have been ineligible for the postseason, if the Mets make it that far.

The Mets said in a statement Tuesday they were ''extremely disappointed.'' New York acquired reliever Tyler Clippard from Oakland on Monday.
