Five minor leaguers suspended for drugs

27 Comments

The minor league drug suspensions have been coming in bunches lately. We missed a handful of them over the holidays and into early January, but it’s been, like, three, four or five at a time.

Today we get a five spot:

  • Dodgers Minor League outfielder Theo Alexander, 50-games following a second positive test for a drug of abuse;
  • Dodgers Minor League pitcher Robert Carson, 50-games following a second positive test for a drug of abuse;
  • Free agent Minor League pitchers Kramer Champlin and Kyle Simon, each with 50-game suspensions following a second positive test for a drug of abuse; and
  • Free agent Minor League pitcher Chad James, a 50-game suspension after testing positive for an amphetamine

Lots of abuse going on this offseason, eh? I wonder how many of these guys live in Colorado or Washington state.
