NEW YORK (AP) -- Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Alan Farina has been suspended for 50 games under minor league baseball's drug program.

The commissioner's office said Wednesday that Farina had a second violation for a drug of abuse.

A 26-year-old right-hander, Farina was 1-2 with a 5.18 ERA last season for Class A Dunedin of the Florida State League.

There have been four suspensions this year under the minor league program. There were 105 last year under the minor league drug problem and eight under the major league program.
