2 Blue Jays minor league pitchers suspended
Thursday, July 14, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- A pair of Toronto Blue Jays pitchers in the Dominican Summer League have been suspended for 50 games each following positive tests under the minor league drug program.
Right-hander Aderly De La Cruz tested positive for metabolites of Nandrolone, and left-hander Luillyn Guillen for metabolites of Stanozolol, the commissioner's office said Thursday.
There have been 38 suspensions this year under the minor league program. Although there have not been any suspensions under the major league program, Manny Ramirez retired rather than face a 100-game ban following a second violation.
