Minnesota Twins minor-league catcher Alex Real was suspended for 50 games without pay after a positive test for a banned stimulant. He was banned Tuesday by the commissioner’s office, according to Joe Frisaro from MLB.com .
The 21-year-old was drafted by the Twins back in June. He played just 28 games at Elizabethton in the rookie Appalachian League and hit .284 with one home run and 11 RBIs.
Real tested positive for Methylhexaneamine. This suspension makes it 60 total this year under the minor league drug program.
