Four minor league baseball players, including MLB veteran Wilson Betemit, have been suspended for violating the league's drug policy.
Betemit, 33, was suspended 50 games without pay for testing positive for Amphetamine. He is currently a free agent who was last in the Tampa Bay Rays organization, and the suspension will become effective if he signs with a new organization.
Boston Red Sox minor league shortstop Ricardo Cubillan received a 76-game suspension without pay after testing positive for a metabolite of Nandrolone. Cubillan is currently at the Single-A level.
San Francisco Giants minor league pitcher Ethan Miller was suspended 50 games without pay after also testing positive for Amphetamine, and is also at the Single-A level.
Tanner Norton, a free agent minor league third baseman, received a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug of abuse.
On Wednesday, four other minor-league players were suspended by MLB.
