Justin Dowdy Faces 50-Game Suspension

Major League Baseball has suspended lefty Justin Dowdy for 50 games. Dowdy, a 28 year old minor league free agent, reportedly refused to take a drug test that had been issued to him, and will have to serve a suspension upon signing with a new organization.

Dowdy, who was drafted by the Chicago White Sox -- back in 2001, in the 18th round of the draft, spent 2011 in the San Francisco Giants organization. In 36 appearances with the Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies, he posted an underwhelming 5.44 ERA. Over his professional career, he's spent time with several organizations: in addition to the Giants and White Sox, he's been with the Mariners, A's, Rays, and Angels organizations.
