Cardinals minor leaguer Alan Ahmady, most notable for driving in 92 runs for Fresno State’s national championship team in 2008, was suspended for 50 games for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Ahmady tested positive for an amphetamine.
The Cardinals drafted Ahmady in the 11th round this season after he batted .326 for the Bulldogs as a junior. He was a crucial middle-of-the-lineup force for the Bulldogs’ 2008 national champions, batting .382-13-92, ranking second only to Buster Posey in RBIs among Division I batters. In his pro debut with short-season Batavia, Ahmady played both third base and first base, with a little catcher and left field thrown in, while batting .292/.407/.391 with three home runs. His on-base percentage ranked second in the New York-Penn League.
