Braves minor league catcher Orrin Sears has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for metabolites of Methandienone, reports David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. His suspension will start at the beginning of the 2014 minor league season.

The Braves selected Sears in the 24th round of last year’s draft. The 22-year-old hit .247 in 89 plate appearances in the Gulf Coast League.

    What? No one has fussed at Bill yet about the picture? You guys are getting soft.

    Thank the gods Craig didn’t write this. I can do without the snarky “good thing he tested positive instead of a non-analytical violation or he’d be banned till the End of Days (plus the playoffs) instead of 50 games” for a change.

    Isn’t it interesting the only players who tested positive for PED since the beginning of 2013 were minor leaguers?

      That is all thanks to Bud Selig’s outstanding drug testing policy! He has really saved the game of Baseball, all hail Bud.
