A Rangers minor leaguer was suspended for amphetamines

Friday afternoon, time for the drug suspensions:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Texas Rangers Minor League outfielder Jacob Skole has been suspended for 50 games without pay after testing positive for an amphetamine, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

He’s at single-A Myrtle Beach. And with a name like “Skole” I woulda thought he’d be popped for breaking the smokeless tobacco rule, but whatever.
