MLB suspended two more minor league players for 50 games after each tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
One was third baseman Stephen King, the Nationals’ third-round pick in 2006. He’s the second ’06 Nats pick suspended this year, joining Stephen Englund, another prep infielder who was converted to pitching this year. King, 22, spent the last two seasons in high Class A Potomac and hit .222/.304/.340 this season. King tested positive for Ritalinic Acid, a stimulant.
The other is catcher Wilson (also known as Willson) Contreras, in the Cubs organization, who was in the Rookie-level Dominican Summer League this season, batting .205. He tested positive for metabolites of Nandrolone.
