Nationals Triple-A righthanded reliever Josh Wilkie received a 50-game suspension for twice testing positive for a "drug of abuse." Major League Baseball announced the penalty in a press release issued Thursday evening.
Signed as a nondrafted free agent from George Washington in June 2006, Wilkie appeared in 18 games with Syracuse this season, his fourth tour of duty with the Chiefs. The 27-year-old logged a 4.76 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 17 innings this season, though he owns a solid 3-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 1.25 WHIP over the course of 169 career Triple-A innings.
