Sand Gnat Suspended 100 Games

The Associated Press at Lo Hud, writes about Mets Minor Leaguer and Sand Gnat pitcher Jorge Reyes getting suspended 100 games for performance enhancing drugs:

A pitcher in the Mets' minor-league system was suspended today for 100 games by the commissioner's office after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Jorge Reyes is the 12th player to be suspended for violating the minor-league drug policy and the first to draw a 100-game suspension for a second violation.

A 22-year-old native of the Dominican Republic, Reyes made one start this season for Class-A Savannah of the South Atlantic League, allowing no runs on four hits in five innings.
