NEW YORK (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Will West had been given a 100-game suspension for violations of baseball's minor league drug program, a penalty that will be added to the 50-game ban from last summer that he hasn't completed.
Major League Baseball said Tuesday that the 21-year-old left-hander tested positive for an amphetamine and had a third positive test for a drug of abuse. He was suspended on Aug. 5 for a drug of abuse and has 30 games remaining to serve.
West made two starts and one relief appearance last summer for the Arizona League Brewers, compiling a 5.06 ERA.
There have been six suspensions this year under the minor league program.
