Today’s minor league drug suspension announcement was a bit different than usual:
The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that three Minor League players in the Tampa Bay Rays organization have been suspended following their violations of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
Second baseman Ryan Brett, pitcher Charles Cononie and pitcher Justin Woodall, all of whom are with Single-A Bowling Green of the Midwest League, each tested positive for methamphetamine and an amphetamine.
Meth? Meth! I know I tend to play down drug stuff in baseball, but I think this one is pretty alarming. Jeez.
