Indians minor leaguer Dillon Howard, who was Cleveland’s second-round pick in 2011, has been suspended 50 games for violating the drug policy.

Howard signed for significantly over the slot recommended bonus at $1.85 million and then had a miserable professional debut last season in rookie-ball, going 1-7 with a 7.90 ERA in 41 innings. He’s yet to pitch this season.

Heading into last season Howard rated as the Indians’ second-best prospect according to Baseball America, but he fell at the way to 25th on BA‘s list this year.

    Isn’t this supposed to be Craig’s weekly post? Plus you used the wrong picture. Office politics…it’s all going to be downhill from here. Sorry, meant Mom’s basement politics.

    Have a good weekend, guys.

    Whoa whoa whoa. Where’s Rachel? That’s the one bright spot for all of us when someone gets put on timeout
