Orioles minor league right-hander Daniel McCutchen suspended 50 games for PEDs

Apr 6, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT


Eddie A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that Orioles minor league right-hander Daniel McCutchen has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for two PEDs. Tests revealed Methenolone and a metabolite of Trenbolon.

McCutchen made one appearance with the Pirates last season and owns a 4.77 ERA over 108 appearances in the majors. The 30-year-old right-hander signed a minor league deal with the Orioles over the winter, but was reassigned to minor league after posting a 6.14 ERA over seven appearances this spring.

The Orioles were trying to reinvent McCutchen as a sidearmer at Triple-A Norfolk, similar to what they did with Mets right-hander Greg Burke last year, but that experiment will now have to wait.

    His younger brother must be ashamed on so many levels. And good hair clearly doesn’t run in the family.

    Least surprising news ever, surprised a pill bottle didnt roll out of his pockets when he pitched.
