NEW YORK (AP) —gent pitcher Joshua Payne have been suspended for 50 games each under baseball’s minor league drug program following second positive tests for drugs of abuse.Tucker Juan Marichal Jersey , a 23-year-old left-hander, was 0-2 with an 18.69 ERA in three starts and one relief appearance last year for the Arizona Rookie League Angels. He was on the roster of rookie-level Orem of the Pioneer League. A 12th-round selection in the 2016 amateur draft, Tucker signed for a $100,000 bonus.Payne, a 24-year-old right-hander , was released Tuesday by the New York Mets‘ organization. He was 4-3 with a 4.39 ERA last year for Columbia of the Class A South Carolina League. A 22nd-round draft pick in 2017, Payne was signed for a $10,000 bonus.The commissioner’s office announced the discipline Friday.Seven players have been suspended this year under the minor league program, plus Kansas City pitcher Eric Skoglund under the major league program. There were 72 suspensions last year, plus 10 under the big league drug program. A waiver claim won and a player lost on waivers might pass for big moves for the Orioles at these winter meetings."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Commentary & AnalysisOrioles ProspectsOrioles Game RecapsOrioles News and RumorsCamdencastOrioles claim Rio Ruiz; Ryan Meisinger claimed by CardinalsNew ,7commentsA waiver claim won and a player lost on waivers might pass for big moves for the Orioles at these winter the O’s, whose infield is in flux. Ruiz has never played shortstop, so scratch him off as a utility candidate. At the moment, his role seems to be “Someone to compete with Renato Nunez for a job,” assuming he even stays on the roster long enough to do that.The 2016 campaign is what offered a bit of appeal for Ruiz as a then-22-year-old prospect Dave Dravecky Jersey , when he posted a .271/.355/.400 batting line in 133 games for Gwinnett. The lefty-batting Ruiz had respectable walk totals at every stop in the minors, but with a .189/.282/.302 batting line in his limited 72 big league games, he hasn’t shown enough power to make MLB pitchers afraid of him yet. He has not stolen more than two bases in a season since 2015.With two open 40-man roster spots, the O’s still opted to place Meisinger on waivers. The 24-year-old Marylander was the O’s 11th round pick in the 2015 draft, from Radford. He ascended the minor league ladder with high strikeout totals , and even struck out 21 batters in 21 big league innings this year. The results in that small sample were not great, though, with Meisinger allowing six home runs and a 6.43 ERA overall. That’s just the sort of fringe player a new GM is likely to look at and think he can use that roster spot better. Meisinger won’t be the last to fall into this category.
