Two Minor League players from the Nationals -- outfielder Edgardo Baez and shortstop Ofilio Castro -- have received 50-game suspensions after each tested positive for an amphetamine, a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

:shock: Castro is the "longest tenured member of the Nats farm system" - but not for long I gather.

damn. Baez has been a disappointment anyways. 4th round pick in the '03 draft by the Expos. Batting .254 with 9 HRs in 323 ABs in AA this year. He had started the year hot but then faded.

Castro is worthless.

Jorge Sosa has been dealing and bringing down the neighborhood? :(

For the love of the gods keep him away from Lannan's Cannons.

Washington Nationals minor league pitcher Stephen Englund has been suspended for 50 games under baseball's minor league drug program after testing positive for an amphetamine.

His suspension began Tuesday. There have been 50 suspensions this year under the minor league drug program and four under the major league program.

The Nationals drafted Englund in the second round in 2006. The 21-year-old righty made one start and two relief appearances this year in the Gulf Coast League and did not allow any runs in 2 2-3 innings.

Englund was a shortstop in high school, and the Nationals took him as an outfielder. He batted .162 last year for Class A Hagerstown with two homers and nine RBIs and .213 for Class A Vermont with two homers and 16 RBIs.

Englund is one more in Bowden's stellar portfolio. Damn he's desperate.  Guess he spent all that 2nd round money already.
