Reds minor league righthander Daniel Tuttle received a 50-game suspension after a second violation of the minor league drug program for a drug of abuse. A fifth-round pick in 2009, he signed out of Randleman (N.C.) High for $200,000.
The 20-year-old Tuttle made 11 starts for low Class A Dayton this season, going 4-3, 4.87 with 50 strikeouts, 21 walks and a 1.38 WHIP in 57 1/3 innings, though his most recent action had come in the Rookie-level Arizona League. In 23 innings for the AZL Reds he notched 35 strikeouts and nine walks in 23 innings.
Four Dominican Summer League pitchers recently received 50-game suspensions for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances:
• Cubs righthander Yomar Morel (metabolite of Boldenone)
• Astros righthander Manuel Sanchez (metabolites of Stanozolol)
