NEW YORK (AP) Baseball has suspended a pair of pitchers for positive tests under its minor league drug program, giving free agent Luis Morel a 72-game ban for a steroids violation and San Francisco's Adalberto Mejia a 50-game penalty for a stimulants infraction.

The commissioner's office said Friday that Morel tested positive for a metabolite of Stanozolol and Mejia for Sibutramine.

A 21-year-old right-hander, Morel was 1-2 with a 4.44 ERA in 10 relief appearances this year for Baltimore's Dominican Summer League team. His suspension will start when he signs with a major league organization.

Mejia is a 21-year-old left-hander who was 7-9 with a 4.67 ERA in 21 starts and one relief appearance this year for Double-A Richmond.

There have been 62 suspensions this year under the minor league drug program.
