Three Yankees Minor Leaguers Suspended

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that three players from the Yankees Dominican Summer League teams – pitchers Anderson Acevedo, Anthoniris Santana, and Carlos Santana – have been suspended for 72 games each after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

All three hurlers tested positive for Stanzolol, a steroid that could be taken via injection or orally and is used by players to build muscle.

Acevedo, 21, is in his first season with the Yankees. He has thrown 7 2/3 innings over five games for the DSL Yankees 1, going 0-1 with a 3.52 ERA.

Anthoniris Santana, 20, is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA over seven games (one start) for the DSL Yankees 1, with 29 strikeouts in 18 innings pitched.

Carlos Santana, 21, has split the season between DSL Yankees 1 and DSL Yankees 2, and has posted a 3.09 ERA in 11 2/3 innings over six games.

This makes five Yankees minor leaguers from the Dominican Summer League teams to be suspended this season; back in March, Moises Cedeno tested positive for Clenbuterol, and Brayan Alcantara tested positive for Stanzolol.
