MLB suspends 2 Mets minor leaguers

Major League Baseball suspended two New York Mets minor leaguers Thursday.

Charles "Dock" Doyle and Scott Moviel both received a 50-game suspension after second violations of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program for a drug of abuse.

Doyle, a catcher, hit .296 in 24 games last season for the Single-A St. Lucie Mets. He was selected by New York in the fifth round of the 2008 first-year player draft.

Moviel, a right-handed pitcher, is currently on the roster of the Double-A Binghamton Mets. A second-round pick in 2007, Moviel went 5-10 with a 5.10 earned run average in 26 games -- 23 starts -- with St. Lucie last season.
