Phillies minor leaguer suspended for drug of abuse


Christopher O’Hare, a left-hander who was the Phillies’ 23rd-round pick last year, has been suspended 50 games after a second positive test for a drug of abuse.

O’Hare made his pro debut last season and spent time at three different levels, but threw a grand total of just five innings in five appearances.

He’ll sit out the first 50 games of the season and once he serves the suspension O’Hare figures to pitch at Single-A as a 23-year-old.
