Holy crap. How many of these have we written in the past month?
Yet another minor leaguer, Francisco Cruceta from the Texas Rangers was suspended today for 50 games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
The 26-year-old Dominican is 1-0 with a 4.82 ERA for the AAA Oklahoma Redhawks this season, with 32 strikeouts over 28 innings, including five starts.
The righty played in four games with the Seattle Mariners last season with a 10.80 ERA and no decisions after pitching for the Cleveland Indians in 2004, where he went 0-1 with a 9.39 ERA.
Cruceta marks Lucky #13 as the number of idiots to get busted for violating the minor league drug policy.
