MLB announced that Orioles left-hander Troy Patton has been suspended 25 games following a positive test for amphetamine use.

Patton has done nice work out of Baltimore’s bullpen during the past three seasons, throwing a combined 142 innings with a 3.05 ERA and 113/33 K/BB ratio in a middle relief role.

He was previously arrested for a DUI in 2011. Barring an appeal Patton will sit out the first month or so of the season.
