NEW YORK (AP) A minor league pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels has been suspended for 50 games under baseball’s minor league drug program for a second positive test for a drug of abuse.
Nathan Bates made one appearance this season at Double-A Mobile of the Southern League. The 24-year-old right-hander threw an inning on April 9, then went on the disabled list.
Bates’ suspension was announced Friday.
