3 Rays Minor Leaguers Suspended 50 Games for Drugs

NEW YORK (AP) — Three minor leaguers in the Tampa Bay Rays’ organization have been suspended 50 games each after positive drug tests.

The commissioner’s office announced the penalties Thursday.

Second baseman Ryan Brett, pitcher Charles Cononie and pitcher Justin Woodall tested positive for methamphetamine and an amphetamine. All three players were with Class A Bowling Green of the Midwest League.

Woodall was 3-4 with a 4.76 ERA. The 24-year-old lefty played football at Alabama, and was a defensive back when the Crimson Tide won the 2009 national championship.
