The Eric Thames home-run watch continues, as do his drug tests.

The rejuvenation of the 30-year-old slugger has been one of baseball's most discussed stories and it's also captured the league's attention. Thames underwent yet another drug test following the conclusion of Friday's game.

This would be Thames' third test in 10 days, according to Tom Haudricot of the Journal Sentinel, and his fourth of the young season.

His previous "random" assessment and third of the year came after he hit his league-leading 11th home run against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday. The homer put Thames in the Milwaukee Brewers' record books, as he became the first player to reach that total in April.


Thames was harmonious about the third test, saying at the time that he has a lot of blood and urine and would be around anytime the league wanted to evaluate him.

At this rate, he'll need to keep a full inventory of his bodily fluids. Thames enters Saturday's game hitting .364/.484/.870 with a 1.9 WAR. He's also tied with 2015 NL MVP Bryce Harper in runs scored with 28.
