Two minor leaguers suspended

3 Comments

Two dudes in the same organization get popped for 50 games:

Seattle Mariners Minor League outfielders Jamal Austin and Jabari Blash have each received a 50-game suspension without pay following second positive tests for a drug of abuse.  Austin is currently on the roster of the Double-A Jackson Generals of the Southern League, while Blash is on the roster of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League.  The suspensions of both players are effective immediately.

Bad couple of says for Blash. First his luggage gets lost, then he gets suspended. Man, wasn’t even worth leaving Tacoma.
