Looks like an O's minor leaguer has been suspended for drug use...
From the Orioles: The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Baltimore Orioles Minor League catcher Michael Ohlman has received a 50-game suspension after a second violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program for a drug of abuse.
The suspension of Ohlman, who is currently on the roster of the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds, will be effective immediately.
Not sure why any player would want to risk their career or development to use drugs; however, temptation is a hard thing to beat. I'm sure Ohlman is sorry for everything, and he'll learn a lesson in a hard way from this.
Finally, Dylan Bundy has dominated in yet another minor league start -- this time at home for Delmarva.
From MASN Sports, Steve Melewski's blog: Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy just completed his third outing as a pro and he has now pitched the equivalent of a nine-inning no-hitter over his three games for the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds.
In the first inning tonight versus Hagerstown, the 19-year-old right-hander got a strikeout, followed by a pair of ground outs. In the second inning he got a fly out and then a pair of strikeouts. In the third he retired the first two hitters on ground outs before allowing a two-out walk before getting an inning-ending ground out.
Bundy retired the first 26 batters he faced as a pro before allowing a two-out walk in the third inning tonight.
Well, I don't think Bundy will be with Delmarva for too long. As it is, it may look like Bundy too good for the level of ball that he is in.
