Mets minor league Urdaneta suspended 50 games
Urdaneta became the 14th player suspended for violating the minor league drug policy. He also is the second pitcher from the Mets’ organization to be banned, joining Class A pitcher Jorge Reyes, who drew a 100-game penalty.
A 27-year-old righthander, Urdaneta was 1-0 with six saves and a 5.84 ERA in 10 games at Class AAA New Orleans of the Pacific Coast League.
Mets reliever Guillermo Mota is serving a 50-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance last season.
