Major League Baseball announced suspensions today for two minor league players.
Free agent outfielder Ben Harrison received a stiff 100-game suspension for the purchase and use of amphetamines, according to an MLB press release. The 28-year-old spent the majority of last season with the Marlins' high Class A Jupiter affiliate, batting .203/.308/.366 with 10 home runs in 227 at-bats. A Rangers' seventh-round pick from Florida in 2004, Harrison played at the Double-A and Triple-A levels for Texas last season before drawing his release on May 26. The Marlins signed him about a week later.
Phillies second baseman Fidel Hernandez will sit for 50 games after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance. Signed out of Venezuela in 2004, he batted .278/.307/.319 in 72 at-bats for high Class A Clearwater this season.
