New York Yankees catcher Damian Taveras and Baltimore Orioles pitcher Ambiorix Suero were suspended for 50 games each Monday after positive tests for banned performance-enhancing substances under baseball’s minor league program.
Taveras tested positive for Stanozolol, and Suero for Boldenone. Both will serve their penalties at the start of next season.
Both players were in the Dominican Summer League. Forty-two of 69 suspensions announced this year under the minor league program have involved DSL players.
