NEW YORK (AP) -- San Francisco Giants reliever Guillermo Mota has been given a 100-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

Major League Baseball announced the penalty Monday.

The 38-year-old right-hander drew a 50-game suspension after the 2006 season for a performance-enhancing substance violation.

Mota was 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA in nine games for the Giants this year. This is his 14th season in the majors.

The commissioner's office said Mota tested positive for Clenbuterol.
