NEW YORK -- Chicago Cubs minor-league right-handers Juancito De La Cruz and Antonio Encarnacion have been suspended 50 games each for violating baseball's minor league drug program.

The commissioner's office announced Wednesday that De La Cruz and Encarnacion both tested positive for metabolites of Stanozolol.

Both players are on the roster of the Dominican Summer League Cubs, and their suspensions are effective immediately.
