Major League Baseball handed down a 50-game suspension to righthander Jacob Rodriguez, who signed with the Royals for $100,000 as a 22nd-round pick in 2007, for failing to take a drug test.
Rodriguez becomes the second minor leaguer in the Royals system in the past year to be suspended for failing to take a drug test after shortstop Tyrone Wilson received the same penalty last April.
The Royals selected Rodriguez, a Whittier, Calif. native, out of East Los Angeles Junior College. He has not yet appeared in a minor league game.
