Giants minor leaguer suspended
NEW YORK -- San Francisco Giants third baseman Nathanael Javier has been suspended 50 games for violating baseball's minor league drug program.
The commissioner's office announced Tuesday that Javier tested positive for metabolites of Stanozolol.
The 17-year-old Javier batted .229 with two homers and 28 RBIs in 59 games this year for the Dominican Summer League Giants. His suspension will take effect at the start of next season.
