NEW YORK (AP) Cincinnati Reds outfield prospect Juan Duran has been suspended for the first 80 games of the season under Major League Baseball's drug program following a positive test for three performance-enhancing substances.
Duran tested positive for Drostanolone, Stanozolol and Nandrolone, the commissioner's office said Friday.
He became the first player penalized under the big league program since St. Louis catcher Stanley Cody on Sept. 12.
A 24-year-old from the Dominican Republic, Duran has spent eight seasons in the minor leagues since signing with the Reds in February 2008 but has not appeared in a major league game. He was added to the 40-man roster in November 2013 and spent the last two seasons on option to the minors.
