Yankees lefthander Angel Reyes received a 50-game suspension for testing positive for stanozolol metabolites, a performance-enhancing substance. Reyes, 21, did not make an Opening Day roster, so his suspension will begin when short-season Staten Island commences play in June.
The Yankees signed Reyes out of the Dominican Republic in 2003, but despite having a fastball that has touched 94 mph, he has struggled to get out of short-season ball. Entering the 2007 season, the converted outfielder was regarded as the lefty with the system’s highest ceiling, but he went just 0-2, 4.65 with 33-21 K-BB in 31 innings for low Class A Charleston that spring. Now he won’t have a chance to build on that full-season ball experience until 2009.
