by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rays prospect Taylor Guerrieri was suspended 50 games for a second positive test for a drug of abuse, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Guerrieri, who was considered the top pitching prospect in the Rays system by many, underwent Tommy John surgery in July and is not expected back until July of 2014. He will begin his suspension once he is fully recovered. He finished 6-2 with a 2.01 ERA in 14 starts for high Class A Bowling Green in 2013.

Taylor Guerrieri leaves with sore elbow
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Rays top pitching prospect Taylor Guerrieri left his start with Class A Bowling Green Monday due to a sore elbow, MiLB.com reports. He left in the third inning and will be re-evaluated Tuesday. 

Guerrieri, who had already skipped his previous start due to shoulder fatigue, was only scheduled to go four innings or 60 pitches Monday before leaving. 

"He threw the pitch, and you could see him grimace right after," said Bowling Green manager Jared Sandberg, whose team went on to win the contest, 6-5. "We all went out there, and there was no real debate as to whether to keep him out there. We took him out, and we'll get him re-evaluated when we get home."

Before the injury, Guerrieri extended a scoreless innings streak to 24, tying him for the franchise record. The right-handed starter has gone 6-2 with a 2.01 ERA and 0.99 WHIP over 65 innings and 13 starts this season with 50 strikeouts and 11 walks.

Taylor Guerrieri pitching like top prospect
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rays starting pitcher prospect Taylor Guerrieri struck out a career-high 10 batters in five scoreless innings during a win Sunday for Class A Bowling Green. The right-hander (2-1) allowed one hit and two walks.

"I had good changeup command. Really, everything was working pretty well," Guerrieri said, per MLB.com. "The only thing I didn't like was those two walks. I didn't feel very good about that. I just got behind. I fell behind 3-0 to both of those guys. All the guys [whom] I got ahead on, I got out. The name of the game is getting ahead, I guess."

Guerrieri sports a 2.00 ERA and .216 opponents' batting average through six starts. He also has 25 strikeouts to six walks in 27 innings. Guerrieri hasn't logged a lot of innings because the Rays continue to keep the 2011 first-round pick on a strict pitch count.

"I'm still on the five innings/75 pitches rule -- whichever comes first," said Guerrieri, who is considered the Rays' second-best prospect by MLB.com. "I'm OK with it. I was in spring training for an extra week, so some of our guys get to do a little more. They're up to six innings/85 pitches. I ended up at 79 pitches after five today. If I could throw out those first two innings and replace them with good innings, I bet I would have gotten to pitch six. Those first two innings took 40 pitches. If you took those away, I would have been able to go a little bit deeper."
