 Biographical Information
Guillermo Mota was signed in 1990 as an infielder by the New York Mets. He was in the Mets' system until the Montreal Expos drafted him in the minor league phase of the 1996 Rule V Draft. The Expos then immediately converted him to pitching in 1997 and put him on a fast track to the majors. By early May of 1999, he was in the majors. He hit a home run in his first major league plate appearance.
He has often been seen as a potential closer, but has faltered when the opportunity to take the role has arisen, although he has had considerable success at times as a set-up man. However, consistency has been a problem for him, and he has moved from team to team in his major league career as a result.
In May 2012, Mota was suspended for 100 games for a second violation of MLB's Drug Policy. The commissioner's office said the right-hander tested positive for Clenbuterol. In November 2006, while with the New York Mets, Mota was suspended for the first 50 games of the next season.
