The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that two Minor League players have been suspended following their violations of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Free agent Minor League left-handed pitcher Tyler Alexander has received a 100-game suspension without pay after a third positive test for a Drug of Abuse. The suspension of Alexander will be effective immediately upon signing with another Major League organization.
