A current Dayton Dragons player and a former Cedar Rapids Kernels player were each suspended 50 games for drug violations.

According to a press release, Cincinnati Reds prospect Montrell Marshall and Minnesota Twins farmhand Sean Miller drew the bans after each tested positive for a drug of abuse a second time.

Marshall played 65 games with the Dragons this season, batting .181 with 21 extra-base hits and 22 runs batted in. He drove in the winning run in last month’s Midwest League All-Star Game, giving the East Division All-Stars a 3-2 win in 10 innings.

Miller played 116 games with the 2015-16 Kernels, cumulatively batting .268 with 29 extra-base hits and 55 RBI. He batted .197 this season, split between Double-A (46 games) and Triple-A (10 games).
