Indians outfielder Juan Valdes was suspended for 50 games Friday for failing a performance-enhancing drugs test, the commissioner’s office announced.
A fifth-round pick in 2003 from Fernando Callejo High in Manati, P.R., Valdes was hitting .319/.415/.479 in 119 at-bats for short-season Mahoning Valley. The switch-hitter has made it as high as low Class A Lake County, where he spent part or all of the 2004-06 seasons.
