Cardinals Minor Leaguer Brett Wiley was suspended for 50 games Wednesday after testing positive for a banned substance.
The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball said Wiley, a second baseman with State College, received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for an Amphetamine. The suspension is effective immediately.
Wiley, 21, is batting .308 with four homers, 43 RBIs, 10 stolen bases and a .395 on-base percentage in 60 games between Class A Short-Season State College, Rookie-level Johnson City and Class A Peoria.
He's currently with State College, where he hit .337 with two homers and 18 RBIs in 25 games for the Spikes. He last played Aug. 29.
The 5-foot-10 Indiana native was drafted by the Cardinals as a shortstop in the 13th round of the 2012 Draft out of Jefferson Junior College in Hillsboro, Mo., and split last season between the Gulf Coast League Cardinals and Class A Quad Cities.
Wiley is the 51st player suspended for violating the Minor League drug program in 2013. The last four suspensions have been handed down to New York-Penn Leaguers -- Tri-City's Jose Fernandez, Michael Martinez and D'Andre Toney received 50-game suspensions on Aug. 30 when the trio tested positive for an amphetamine.
