Free agent lefthander Justin Dowdy refused to take a Major League Baseball-issued drug test, triggering a 50-game suspension that will begin upon his signing with an affiliated organization.
The 28-year-old Dowdy spent most of last season with the Giants' Triple-A Fresno affiliate, appearing in 36 games and notching a 39-to-32 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 44 2/3 relief innings. San Francisco nabbed Dowdy in the 2010 minor league Rule 5 draft, selecting him from the Rays, who in turn had signed him out of the independent American Association in August 2010.
