Left-handed pitcher Francisco Tena has been suspended for 50 games for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Tena tested positive for Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing steroid.
Tena was signed out of the Dominican Republic in December and was expected to be on the Dominican Summer League roster. His situation is similar to that of Gerson Bautista, who tested positive for the same substance in April 2013 before making his professional debut. After completing his 50-game suspension, Bautista remained on the restricted list for the rest of the season.
