Major League Baseball announced the suspensions of two minor league pitchers on Friday following their violations of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program.

Luis Atilano, a pitcher in the Cincinnati Reds system, has received a 50-game suspension after a second violation for a drug of abuse, while Marco Duarte, a hurler in the Boston Red Sox system, has received a 50-game ban after testing positive for an amphetamine.

Both suspensions are without pay and are effective immediately.
