Twins minor league 2B suspended 50 games

AP - Sports

NEW YORK (AP) -- Minnesota Twins second baseman Eddie Rosario has been suspended 50 games for a second positive test for a drug of abuse in violation of baseball's minor league drug program.

Rosario is on the roster of Double-A New Britain and his suspension, announced Saturday, will begin at the start of the Rock Cats' season.

The 21-year-old Rosario was a fourth-round pick in 2010. He batted .302 with 10 homers and 73 RBIs in 122 games split between Class-A and Double-A last year.

He is the second player suspended for violating the minor league drug program this year, both for drugs of abuse. There were 60 suspensions last year under the minor league program and 16 under the major league program.
