    Associated Press

    NEW YORK -- New York Mets reliever Felix Heredia was suspended for the first 10 days of next season for violating baseball's steroids policy.

    Heredia became the 11th major league player suspended for steroids. The announcement came Tuesday.

    Traded from the Yankees to the Mets during the offseason, Heredia appeared in only three games before going on the disabled list in April with a strained left thumb. Doctors then found an aneurysm in his left shoulder after he began having circulation problems and he missed the rest of the season following surgery.

    Heredia is 28-19 with six saves in 511 career games, all but two in relief.
