NEW YORK -- Two players in the Oakland Athletics organization have been given 25-game suspensions for violating the minor league drug and treatment program.

The commissioner's office announced Friday that right-handed pitcher David Mota and shortstop Wilfrido Sosa have been penalized.

Both players are on the roster of Class A Vermont. The suspensions will take effect when the New York-Penn League season begins.
