Red Sox prospect William Abreu, a 19-year-old pitcher in rookie-ball, has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for the anabolic steroid known as Deca-Durabolin.

Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com notes that Abreu is just the second Red Sox minor leaguer to be suspended for PED use, with the first being Felix Romero back in 2005.

Abreu, who was signed out of the Dominican Republic last year, has yet to play a professional game.

    They have a fantasy league for rookie ball?

      Yeah but I’m the only manager in the league.
