Major League Baseball has suspended three minor league baseball players for violating the terms of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Baltimore Orioles outfielder prospect Markel Jones, who is a member of the Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds, has received a 50-game suspension without pay.
This is his second positive test after a “drug of abuse.”
St. Louis Cardinals catching prospect Tyler Lancaster, who is presently with the Single-A State College Spikes, has received a 76-game suspension without pay. He tested positive for taking Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, a performance-enhancing substance.
Also, New York Mets catching prospect Luis Lebron was also busted. The rookie-level Gulf Coast League Mets player has received a 25-game suspension without pay for violating the program.
