NEW YORK — A minor league pitcher for the San Francisco Giants and a minor league shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds have been suspended for drug violations.
The commissioner's office said Wednesday that right-hander Jacob Dunnington received a 50-game penalty after a second positive test for a drug of abuse. Dunnington was playing for Class A Augusta of the South Atlantic League.
Cesar Mejia of the Reds' organization has been suspended 72 games after testing positive for a metabolite of Boldenone. He was in the Dominican Summer League.
