Shortstop Jose Torres, who finished last season with high Class A Jupiter in the Marlins system, drew a 50-game suspension for testing positive for Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a performance-enhancing substance. A Major League Baseball press release issued today refers to Torres as a free agent, implying that the Marlins released the 21-year-old this spring.
Torres signed with Florida on July 2, 2007, and batted .242/.296/.278 in 889 career at-bats for four Marlins affiliates.
