NEW YORK (AP) Cleveland Indians pitcher Skylar Arias has been suspended for 56 games under baseball's minor league drug program following a positive test for Nandrolone, a steroid.

The 19-year-old left-hander was selected in the 24th round of the amateur draft in June and went 1-1 with a 3.72 ERA in 11 relief appearances for the rookie-level Arizona League Indians.

Arias' suspension, announced Monday, was the 69th this year under the minor league drug program. There have been 13 under the major league program.
