Two former Midwest League players were suspended today for violations of baseball’s drug policy. RHP Kameron Loe and OF Terrell Joyce each received a 50-game penalty after testing positive for a drug of abuse.
Loe went 4-3 with a 1.95 ERA, two saves, 94 strikeouts and 19 walks in 97 IP for the 2003 Clinton LumberKings. He made his major-league debut for the Texas Rangers in 2004. Currently a free agent, he also has pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners, Chicago Cubs and Atlanta Braves.
Joyce also is a free agent. He played three seasons in the Houston Astros organization, including 2013 with the Quad Cities River Bandits. He batted .186 with 3 HR and 26 RBI in 72 games.
A third former Midwest Leaguer, 2013 South Bend Silver Hawks LHP Henry Garcia, was suspended 50 games for a drug violation earlier this week.
