Jarrod Dyson became the second Royals minor league in less than a month to be handed a 50-game drug-related suspension.
The Commissioner’s office on Saturday slapped Dyson with a 50-game suspension after he tested positive for an amphetamine, a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention Program. In late January, the Commissioner’s office announced that infielder Jason Taylor was facing a 50-game suspension for test positive for a recreational drug.
Dyson, 24, was Kansas City’s 50th-round pick, 1,475th overall, in 2006. An outfielder from Southwest Mississippi JC, he hit just .260/.337/.288 with eight doubles but no home runs and 24 RBIs in 288 at-bats in the Carolina League last season. Speed has been Dyson’s biggest calling card throughout his career–he has 61 career steals in 154 games, but only 19 extra-base hits and no home runs in 486 career at-bats.
