Major League Baseball suspended righthander Brian Parker of the Orioles for 50 games after a second positive test for a drug of abuse, in violation of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program.
Parker, 24, finished last season by making two appearances and notching one save at Double-A Bowie after going 4-3, 4.31 at high Class A Frederick with 64 strikeouts in 64 2/3 innings. He's a sinker-slider reliever who did not make the Orioles' Top 30 prospects in BA's Prospect Handbook. He was a 19th-round pick in 2007 out of Lewis-Clark (Idaho) State.
