Two minor leaguers suspended for drugs

From the blotter:

Free agent Minor League right-handed pitchers Manuel Montilla and Euris Quezada have each received 50-game suspensions without pay after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol.  The suspensions of Montilla and Quezada will be effective immediately upon their signing with another Major League organization.

As of the end of March first time suspensions are ratcheted up to 80 games, so I presume this means that these tests were administered before then.
