NEW YORK — Toronto Blue Jays minor league pitcher Clinton Hollon has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for an amphetamine in violation of the minor league drug program.
Hollon is a 2013 graduate of Woodford County High School in Kentucky who helped lead the Yellowjackets to the 2012 state championship.
The commissioner’s office made the announcement about his suspension Friday.
The 20-year-old right-hander was taken by the Blue Jays in the second round of the 2013 draft. He is 1-1 with a 4.05 ERA for Class A Lansing of the Midwest League.
There have been 78 suspensions this year under the minor league drug program.
