Baltimore Orioles minor league right-handed pitcher Daniel McCutchen was suspended 50 games for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy for using a banned substance, the league announced Saturday.

McCutchen tested positive for Methenolone and a metabolite of Trenbolone, the league announced. The suspension begins immediately.

The Orioles signed McCutchen to a minor league contract in November.

McCutchen, 29, was 1-0 with a 6.14 ERA in 7 1/3 innings during spring training with the Orioles before getting sent down to Class AAA Norfolk on March 23. In one game with Norfolk, McCutchen allowed four runs in 1 2/3 innings.

He is 8-11 with a 4.77 ERA in 108 games (15 starts) over four seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
