NEW YORK (AP) Cincinnati outfielder Nate Scantlin has been suspended for 50 games and Atlanta pitcher Carlos Caminero for 25 games under baseball's minor league drug program.
Scantlin was disciplined following a second positive test for a drug of abuse, the commissioner's office said Friday. Scantlin was cited for an unspecified violation; 25 games matches the penalty for the first violation for use or possession of a syringe or any injectable substance.
