Police blotter:

Tampa Bay Rays Minor League right-handed pitcher Lenny Linsky has received a 50-game suspension without pay following a second positive test for a drug of abuse.  The suspension of Linsky, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A Montgomery Biscuits of the Southern League, is effective immediately.

Free agent Minor League right-handed pitcher Aaron Gonzales has received a 50-game suspension without pay following a second positive test for a drug of abuse.  The suspension of Gonzales is effective immediately upon his signing with another Major League organization.

Those are big suspensions. But then again, this is serious business. It’s not like they did something small like punch a woman out or discriminate against an employee or something.
