Yankees’ Aceves Gets 50-Game MLB Ban for Second Failed Drug Test

July 3 (Bloomberg) -- New York Yankees pitcher Alfredo Aceves received a 50-game suspension from Major League Baseball following a second positive test for a “drug of abuse” while in the team’s minor-league system.

Aceves, a 31-year-old right-hander, has been pitching for the the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate. He made 10 relief appearances for the Yankees in May and June, compiling a 1-2 record with a 6.52 earned run average.

Aceves’s suspension is effective immediately, the office of the commissioner said in a statement. Aceves, who also played with the Yankees from 2008-10 before spending the past three seasons with the Boston Red Sox, has a 31-16 record with a 3.83 ERA over his seven-year major league career.
