Two Yankees minor leaguers suspended for PEDs

From the police blotter:

New York Yankees Minor League right-handed pitcher Andy Beresford and Minor League first baseman Leonard Thompson have each received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for an Amphetamine.  Beresford is currently on the roster of the Single-A Charleston RiverDogs of the South Atlantic League, while Thompson is on the roster of the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Yankees.  The suspensions of both players are effective immediately.

So, like, I guess the Bombers will have to look elsewhere for backup plans for Tanaka and Teixeira.
