Reds' Covington suspended
Saturday, April 06, 2013 5:00 AM
NEW YORK (AP) - Cincinnati right-hander Vaughn Covington and Los Angeles Angels catcher Carlos Ramirez have been suspended 50 games each for second violations for drugs of abuse under baseball's minor league program.
The 25-year-old Ramirez was selected from Arizona State in the eighth round of the 2009 draft. He is with Double-A Arkansas of the Texas League, where he hit .204 last year with two homers and 23 RBIs in 275 at-bats.
The 19-year-old Covington was 0-2 with 7.88 ERA last year in three starts and 12 relief appearances for the rookie league Reds. He remains on their roster.
The suspensions were announced Friday. They raise the total this year under the minor league program to 11, including five for drugs of abuse.
