MB Pelicans suspend 3 for banned substances

Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Three Minor League players suited up with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans have each received 50-game suspensions after testing positive for banned substances.

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball made the striking announcement Friday, adding that the players who tested positive will begin their suspensions immediately.

Infielders Albaro "Yoel" Campusano, Geraldo Rodriguez and Amadeo Zazueta all tested positive for an amphetamine, which is an performance-enhancing substance.

Using an amphetamine is a directo violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Scott Brown, general manager of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, has not commented on the issue.
