Red Sox minor league righthander Mathew Price made just three appearances last season, the first of his career, following his recovery from Tommy John surgery. The 22-year-old won't get back on the mound this season any time soon, however, after he violated the minor league drug prevention and treatment program by twice testing positive for a so-called drug of abuse. Major League Baseball announced the suspension today.
Boston selected Price in the eighth round of the 2010 draft from Virginia Tech and paid him a $415,000 bonus as an eligible sophomore. He began this season on the low Class A Greenville disabled list and did not appear in a game prior to his suspension.
