    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Six minor league players were suspended 50 games each on Friday for doping, one day after five others were punished for using performance-enhancing substances, the commissioner of baseball's office announced.

    The five suspended Thursday were all from the Dominican Summer League, and five of Friday's offenders also came from that league including pitchers Billis Andujar and Jose Encarnacion of the Tigers organization.

    Other Dominican league players suspended were pitchers Carlos Rosario of the White Sox, Aristedes Santos of the Royals and Jorge Serra of the Blue Jays. Milwaukee Brewers hurler Cody Adams of the Single-A Midwest League was also punished.

    I have an old coworker who said he knows of a reds reliever who bought a bag of weed of someone at a party. A young guy who has been up and down.

    He wouldn't give me a name because he said he didn't remember. Just remembers his friend bringing it up.

    The guy has no reason to lie because he doesnt follow baseball. Just take it for what it's worth.

    All I know is that if any minor leaguers read this and know who it is, tell them to get their head on straight and dont eff up your oppotunity me or anyone of us at redszone would kill to have.

    I didn't expect it to be, since Geovany Soto tested positive at the WBC and wasn't given a suspension. I guess only MLB tests count? Would think a positive test is a positive test when it comes to banned substances, but I guess not.
