Another minor leaguer has tested positive for drugs of abuse.
Outfielder Cedrick "Doc" Brooks, released by the Colorado Rockies in March, was suspended Wednesday for 50 games by the commissioner's office.
Brooks hit .277 with 16 home runs and 62 RBIs for the Class-A Modesto Nuts in 2006. His penalty will take effect immediately if he signs with another big league organization.
The Rockies acquired Brooks in 2005 as the player to be named in the trade that sent Preston Wilson to the Washington Nationals.
Testing for drugs of abuse is not administered randomly, but on a basis of reasonable cause. The list of banned substances for drugs of abuse include marijuana, cocaine, LSD, PCP, opiates, MDMA, GHB and Ephedra.
