According to an MLB release, via Alex Seixerio, Toronto Blue Jays minor league pitcher Alan Farina has been suspended 50 games after his second drug-of-abuse violation. There is no evidence that Farina used any performance-enhancing drugs. Farina, 26, had Tommy John surgery in July 2011 and thus only pitched 24 games with the A-advanced Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League last season. He started the 2012 season on the 60-day disabled list before being outrighted off the 40-man roster on July 3. Only players not on the 40-man roster can be randomly tested for a drug-of-abuse. There are no details yet on what drug Farina tested positive for. Drugs-of-abuse include: cannabinoids (eg. marijuana), cocaine, LSD, opiates, MDMA, GHB, and phencyclidine.
