Today is the pitchers and catchers report day for the Cleveland Indians. So getting suspended today is like getting suspended on the first day of school:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Cleveland Indians Minor League right-handed pitcher Tyler Sturdevant has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Amphetamine, a stimulant in violation ofthe Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Sturdevant is on the Triple-A roster, which means he’ll likely play in Columbus when he comes back. In the meantime, Tyler, if you’re looking to hang out in Columbus call me, dude. I know you’ll have a lot of time on your hands.
