Dodgers minor leaguer Redman suspended 50 games

Prentice Redman, an outfielder for the Dodgers' triple-A Albuquerque affiliate, has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for amphetamines, the commissioner's office announced Friday.

Redman, 30, is in his 12th minor league season, his first in the Dodgers organization after playing in the minor leagues for the New York Mets, Washington Nationals and Seattle Mariners. He is batting .332 with 10 home runs at Albuquerque.

Redman is the second Dodgers minor leaguer this season to be suspended 50 games for violating baseball's drug policy. Andrew Lambo, 21, ranked by Baseball America as the Dodgers' top outfield prospect, was suspended last month after testing positive for a "drug of abuse," later confirmed to be marijuana.
