Royals shortstop Tyrone Wilson was suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball for failing to take a drug test, a violation of the drug testing agreement.
We can’t remember a prior case of a player being suspended for refusing to take a drug test, but we’re looking into it.
The Royals selected Wilson, a three-sport star at Southern High in Durham, N.C., in the 16th round of last year’s draft. Because he did not make a full-season team’s roster, his suspension takes effect June 23, Opening Day for the Rookie-level Arizona League Royals.
