Tigers' Minor Leaguer Carrillo suspended

Minor League right-hander Cesar Carrillo received a 100-game suspension for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Carrillo, 28, was listed in January's Miami New Times report that linked several Major Leaguers to performance-enhancing substances and a recently-closed clinic in Miami.

The Tigers signed Carrillo to a Minor League deal last June. He pitched for High A Lakeland and Double-A Erie, going a combined 3-6 with a 6.23 ERA in 12 games (10 starts).

Carrillo is a former first-round Draft pick, selected No. 18 overall by the Padres in 2005. He spent six seasons in the Padres organization and was last with Houston before signing with the Tigers.
