From the blotter:

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Arizona Diamondbacks Minor League outfielder Matt Railey has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Amphetamine, a stimulant in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

The suspension of Railey, who is currently on the roster of the rookie-level Missoula Osprey of the Pioneer League, will be effective at the start of the 2015 Pioneer League season.

Railey was the Dbacks’ third round pick last summer. He has 16 whole games of rookie ball under his belt. Not the best way to kick off a career, friend.
