Pittsburgh Pirates left-hander Nik Turley was suspended for 80 games without pay after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

The commissioner’s office said Saturday that Turley tested positive for Ipamorelin. The suspension will start at the beginning of the regular season.

Turley, 28, made his major-league debut last year for Minnesota, going 0-2 with an 11.21 earned-run average in 10 appearances. Pittsburgh claimed him off waivers in November.

Change in position

Third baseman Manny Machado will start at shortstop for the Baltimore Orioles this season — if he isn’t traded.

Machado becomes a free agent after this year and is sure to demand a big contract. The Orioles have entertained trade offers for the 25-year-old, who’s been an All-Star in half of his six seasons with Baltimore.

But Dan Duquette, vice president of baseball operations for the Orioles, said Saturday that he expects Machado to be part of the team in 2018.

Former pitcher dies

Former Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins pitcher Marcos Carvajal died in his native Venezuela of pneumonia. He was 34.

Baseball colleagues said the illness was made worse by medicine shortages including antibiotics in the crisis-wracked nation.

Marcos Carvajal pitched for the Rockies in 2005 and briefly for the Marlins two seasons later. He later returned to Venezuela and played for a team in his hometown of Ciudad Bolivar and at the time of his death was working as a youth coach.
