NEW YORK (AP) — Seattle Mariners minor league outfielders Jamal Austin and Jabari Blash have been suspended 50 games each for drug violations.
The commissioner’s office announced the penalties Friday, saying the suspensions followed second positive tests for a “drug of abuse.”
Austin is on the roster of the Double-A Jackson Generals of the Southern League, and Blash is on the roster of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League.
