Outfielder Marlon Byrd suspended 50 games for positive drug test

Outfielder Marlon Byrd, a free agent after being released by the Boston Red Sox on June 12, has been suspended 50 games after a positive drug test.

ESPN's T.J. Quinn reports on Twitter that Byrd's positive test came for a drug used to deal with the side effects of steroids, not a performance-enhancing drug itself.
