Two Chicago Cubs Minor Leaguers Suspended for Testing Positive for Steroids

Chicago Cubs News, Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

A couple of Chicago Cubs minor leaguers recently tested positive for a banned substance (we’ll use “steroids” as the catch-all), and will be suspended for 50 games, says the Commissioner’s Office. Pitcher Amalio Reyes and catcher Erick Castillo, members of the organization’s Dominican Summer League team, were the guilty Cubs. Neither was a member of the Cubs’ top Dominican Summer League team last year, so I can’t offer you much in the way of background on the players. Suffice it to say, neither appears to be a legitimate prospect – and even less so after this news.
