NEW YORK (AP) - A minor league pitcher in the Miami Marlins' organization has been given a 50-game drug suspension.
The commissioner's office said Friday that right-hander Ronny Fermin had been penalized. Fermin is on the roster of the Marlins team in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League.
Fermin was banned after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the minor league drug program.
There have been 11 suspensions this year under the minor league program.
