Carlos Ramirez, an Angels minor league catcher who played at Double-A last season, has been suspended 50 games after a second positive test for an undisclosed “drug of abuse.” In other words, not a performance-enhancing drug.

Ramirez is 25 years old, has yet to advance past Double-A, and hit .204 in 85 games there last season, so he’s very far from being a prospect.

He was the Angels’ eighth-round pick in the 2009 draft out of Arizona State.

    In other words, it’s illegal but not as illegal as beating your wife or driving drunk.
