NEW YORK (AP) Minor leaguers Xavier Turner of the Texas Rangers and Cam Williams of the Los Angeles Angels have been suspended for violating baseball's minor league drug program.
Turner, an outfielder with Single-A Hickory, has been suspended for 50 games for a second positive test for a drug of abuse. Williams, an outfielder with the rookie-level Angels in the Arizona League, has received a 56-game penalty for testing positive for a metabolite of Nandrolone, a performance-enhancing substance.
Major League Baseball announced the suspensions on Friday.
