NEW YORK (AP) A minor league shortstop in the San Francisco organization and a free agent pitcher have been given drug-related suspensions.

The commissioner's office announced the penalties Wednesday.

Robert Antunez was suspended 72 games without pay after testing positive for a metabolite of Nandrolone, a performance-enhancing substance.

The 19-year-old Antunez was on the roster of the Dominican Summer League Giants.

Free agent pitcher Ely Echarry was banned 50 games without pay for refusing to take a drug test. The 23-year-old righty spent six seasons in the Tampa Bay system, reaching the High-A level in 2014 in his final season.

There have been 102 suspensions this year under the minor league program.
