Major League Baseball continued cracking down on players for stimulant use today, handing out 50-game suspensions to prospects Josh Sale and Marcus Stroman, as reported by Matt Eddy of Baseball America.

The 21-year-old Stroman was selected in the first-round (No. 22 overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in this past year's draft. The 5-foot-9 right-handed pitcher had already been pitching in Double-A and could have seen major league action this year. According to Barry Davis of Sportsnet, the substance Stroman took was methylhexaneamine.

The 21-year-old Sale was the Tampa Bay Rays' top selection in the 2010 draft, going No. 17 overall. As noted by Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times, Sale is the fourth player from Class-A Bowling Green to be suspended for methamphetamine and an amphetamine.
