• St. Louis Cardinals Minor League shortstop Lainer Bueno, a member of the club's Venezuelan Summer League roster, tested positive for Clenbuterol.

• Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Minor League outfielder Reynaldo Ruiz, a member of the club's Dominican Summer League team, tested positive for a metabolite of Boldenone.

The suspensions of the three players are effective at the start of next season.
