Yankees minor league righthander Daniel Gil and a pair of Venezuelan Summer League Phillies have earned suspensions for failed drug tests.
The 22-year-old Gil tested positive for Sibutramine, a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program. Signed out of Mexico in December 2005, Gil made 32 appearances (seven starts) for high Class A Tampa, going 7-2, 4.66 with 48 strikeouts and 28 walks in 77 1/3 innings.
Phillies righthander Ronald Mendez and lefthander Audrys Mora each received a 25-game suspensions for a "violation of the minor league drug program," according to a press release from Major League Baseball.
