Reds, Braves minor leaguers suspended for drug violations

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Cincinnati outfielder Nate Scantlin has been suspended for 50 games and Atlanta pitcher Carlos Caminero for 25 games under baseball's minor league drug program.

Scantlin was disciplined following a second positive test for a drug of abuse, the commissioner's office said Friday. Scantlin was cited for an unspecified violation; 25 games matches the penalty for the first violation for use or possession of a syringe or any injectable substance.

The 21-year-old Scantlin was selected by the Reds in the 17th round of the 2017 amateur draft. He hit .241 with 14 RBIs in 46 games last year with Greeneville of the Appalachian League and was 1 for 10 in three games with Dayton of the Midwest League.

Caminero, a 21-year-old left-hander, has spent the past two seasons with the rookie-level Dominican Summer League Braves, He was 1-2 with a 1.87 ERA and five saves in 17 relief appearances last year.
