Christopher De La Rosa receives 50-game suspension

MLB.com is reporting that Sox minor league outfielder Christopher De La Rosa has received a 50-game suspension for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. He tested positive for metabolites of stanozolol, a banned substance. The 19-year-old De La Rosa appeared in 42 games last season for the Dominican Summer League Red Sox, batting .219/.378/.343 with 1 home run and 16 RBI in 137 at bats. New York Mets Triple-A pitcher Junior Guerra was also suspended 50 games by the league Friday for taking the banned substance nandrolone.
