From the blotter:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Seattle Mariners Minor League right-handed pitcher Forrest Snow has received a 50-game suspension without pay after a second positive test for a drug of abuse in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The suspension of Snow, who is currently on the roster of Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League, will be effective at the start of the 2014 season.

Snow, a 44th round draft pick, has been at Triple-A for parts of three seasons.  Over his whole minor league career he’s 15-27 with a 4.50 ERA and 362 strikeouts vs. 153 walks in 388 and a third innings, primarily as a reliever.

Moreover, his parents must be big fans of winter getaways given his name.

    Nice to see the lovely Rachel Leigh Cook back and reporting on the suspensions of various dumbasses in baseball. Now let’s have no more of that silly chemical symbology as a picture for these stories, m’kay Craig?

    But, but, weed is legal in Washington now!

    Yes, but your employer can still take sanctions against you.

    A reminder that Forrest Snow was in the running for the 2013 MiLB Moniker of The Year contest. But as fate would have it he lost out to Sicnarf Lopstok.

    Yes. Sicnarf Lopstok.
