His suspension begins immediately and he will forfeit $221,858.

The Phillies said in a statement they were “disappointed to hear today’s news of Daniel’s violation.”

Stumpf tested positive for taking an anabolic steroid.

The 25-year-old rookie Texas native has appeared in three games this season and compiled a 40.50 ERA.

The Phillies recalled left-handed reliever Elvis Araujo from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Stumpf’s spot on the roster.
