Marlins righthander Pascual Arias, who pitched in the Dominican Summer League last season, has been slapped with a 50-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, the Commissioner’s office announced Tuesday.
The Commissioner’s office said it was for metabolites of Stanozolol.
Arias, a 6-foot-1, 165-pound righthander, turned 20 last September. He was 0-1, 4.50 with 26 strikeouts and eight walks in 24 innings.
His suspension will begin at the start of the 2009 season.
