Major League Baseball meted out 50-game suspensions to three players, a group including a 2000 first-round pick and a pair of Latin pitchers who spent '09 as teenagers in the Dominican Summer League.
• White Sox Triple-A outfielder Miguel Negron, 27, failed his second test for a "drug of abuse." Selected 20th overall by the Blue Jays back in 2000, the Caguas, Puerto Rico, native has also played in the Cubs, Mets and White Sox systems, never recording a big league plate appearance. Negron batted .279/.324/.365 with four homers and 14 stolen bases in 103 games for Charlotte.
• Yankees lefthander Rony Bautista (metabolite of Boldenone) and Angels righty Roberto Toribio (metabolites of Stanozolol) each garnered 50-game suspensions of the performance-enhancing substance variety.
