Dodgers minor leaguer Jose Dominguez has been suspended 25 games for violating baseball’s drug policy, according to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

Dominguez was signed out of the Dominican Republic as a 16-year-old and the 22-year-old right-hander has pitched five seasons in the Dodgers’ farm system, spending most of this year at high Single-A.

He moved from the rotation to the bullpen this season and logged 79 innings with a 4.90 ERA and 87/47 K/BB ratio, giving him a 4.57 ERA for his career.

No word on which drug Dominguez tested positive for.

    If he tested positive, wouldn’t that be a 50 day suspension?

    I think a 25 day suspension would mean he was either convicted of using something banned, or he refused to enter a drug treatment program.

      Sorry, *game suspension
