Twins minor league pitcher Cam Booser suspended for 50 games

Twins minor leaguer pitcher Cameron Booser will miss 50 games due to violations of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Minnesota Twins left-hander Cam Booser has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for a drug of abuse for the second time.

Cam Booser was signed by the Minnesota Twins as a non-drafted free agent on Aug. 12, 2013. Booser, a 25-year-old on the Rookie-level Elizabethton Twins, had pitched 2 2/3 innings this season for Class A Advanced Fort Myers, allowing one run while walking seven and hitting two batters over three relief appearances. He went 0-4 with an 8.53 ERA, 34 strikeouts and 31 walks over 25 1/3 innings for Class A Cedar Rapids and Fort Myers in 2016.

Booser’s ban will begin with Elizabethtown’s season opener Thursday against Danville. These suspensions are the 43rd and 44th handed down for violations of the Minor League drug program in 2017.

    I hate to say it, but I will be shocked if we ever hear from him again. Walking 31 batters in just over 25 innings doesn’t give management a lot of reason to be patient, especially when they have to find slots for a bunch of guys that are now signing after the draft. Plenty of cuts were going to be made; this one might have come anyway, but it has to be automatic now.

    You are probably correct, the only question I would have is if you can get rid of a player while he is suspended or do you have to wait until his suspension is served.
