NEW YORK (AP) -Milwaukee Brewers catching prospect Angel Salome was suspended for 50 games Tuesday after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing substance under baseball's minor league drug program.
The 21-year-old is batting .318 with six homers and 53 RBIs for Class-A Brevard County of the Florida State League.
He became the 18th player suspended this year under baseball's minor league program. Two players have been suspended under the major league program: Tampa Bay pitcher Juan Salas (performance-enhancing substance) and Detroit infielder Neifi Perez (stimulant).
