Indians minor leaguer Tyler Sturdevant suspended 50 games

NEW YORK (AP) Cleveland Indians pitcher Tyler Sturdevant has been suspended for 50 games under baseball’s minor league drug program following a positive test for a banned amphetamine.

The 29-year-old right-hander is on the roster of Triple-A Columbus of the International League. He spent last season with the Clippers and Akron, going 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and eight saves in 46 relief appearances.

The suspension, announced Wednesday, was the 35th this year under the minor league program.
