Minor Leaguers Camp, Osteen suspended
Two Minor Leaguers were suspended for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, the Commissioner's Office announced Wednesday.

Cubs Minor League outfielder Matt Camp and free-agent pitcher Adam Osteen each received 50-game suspensions. Camp's suspension came for his second violation for a drug of abuse, while Osteen was suspended after he tested positive for Methasterone and metabolites of Methandienone.

Camp, the Cubs' 13th-round Draft pick in 2006, hit .198 with 13 doubles in 78 games between Triple-A Iowa and Double-A Tennessee. He is currently on the active roster for the Double-A Smokies and his suspension is effective immediately.

Osteen, who appeared in five games for the Class A Short-Season affiliate of the D-backs earlier this season, will begin serving his suspension immediately upon his signing with a Major League organization.
