Dodgers pitcher Angel Guzman suspended 50 games

NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Angel Guzman has been suspended for
50 games by Major League Baseball for a second violation under the minor league
drug program for a drug of abuse.

The 30-year-old right-hander was 3-10 with a 4.82 ERA
for the Chicago Cubs from 2006-09, then missed 2010 with a torn shoulder
ligament. He spent 2011 at Class A in the Cubs’ minor league system, making two
appearances at Peoria of the Midwest League and going 0-3 with a 4.26 ERA in 19
games at Daytona of the Florida State League.

He signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers in
December and attended big league spring training, then was sent to Triple-A
Albuquerque.

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