Phillies right-hander Steve Geltz received a 100-game suspension without pay after failing his third test for a “drug of abuse,” USA Today’s Bob Nightengale reported Saturday. Geltz signed a minor league pact with the Phillies last month and was expected to provide bullpen depth for the club this season. The 30-year-old righty was last seen in the majors with the 2016 Rays, when he posted a career-worst 5.74 ERA and -0.8 fWAR in 27 relief appearances. He spent the entirety of his 2017 season with the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate and turned in a respectable 2.67 ERA, 4.0 BB/9 and 9.7 SO/9 over 27 innings.
