Five low-level minor leaguers received 50-game suspensions after each tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance. A change in reporting policy has made public the names of Dominican Summer League players for the first time. That explains the rash of DSL suspensions we’ve seen this summer.
Cardinals catcher Juan Castillo, 18, tested positive for metabolites of Stanozolol. He was playing in the U.S., in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League, where he was batting .293/.384/.400 in 75 at-bats.
The following four DSL players tested positive for a metabolite of Boldenone:
• Dodgers shortstop Rafael Aybar, 18, was hitting .224/.341/.280 in 107 at-bats.
• Marlins righthander Alfredo Buret, 21, went 6-3, 2.34 with 68 strikeouts and 27 walks in 96 innings.
• Orioles righthander Julio Sanchez, 17, went 4-0, 3.14 with 35 strikeouts and 33 walks in 48 2/3 innings.
• Twins outfielder Eliel Sierra, 22, was batting .230/.370/.348 in 187 at-bats.
