Mets minor leaguer suspended
By Adam Rubin
Minor league right-hander Brandon Moore, one of the organization's picks to attend the Arizona Fall League, has been suspended 50 games for a second positive test for a drug of abuse, Major League Baseball announced.
Moore was 10-8 with a 4.47 ERA in 26 games (25 starts) this season at Double-A Binghamton.
UPDATE: An MLB official said Arizona Fall League games do not count toward the suspension, but that Moore is nonetheless ineligible to participate.
