Rangers center-field prospect Jake Skole batted just .185/.288/.260 in 227 at-bats during the first half of the season with high Class A Myrtle Beach. Redemption for Skole, a 20-year-old whom Texas drafted 15th overall in 2010, will have to wait for the final days of August following news of his 50-game suspension. The commissioner's office announced the penalty in a press release issued Friday evening.
Skole will sit out 50 games without pay following a positive test for an amphetamine, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program.
