CBSSports.com wire reports

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Angels minor-league pitcher Daniel Reynolds has been suspended 50 games for a second drug violation.

The right-hander was penalized Tuesday under baseball's minor-league program for a drug of abuse.

Taken by the Angels with the 201st pick of the 2009 amateur draft, the 20-year-old was 3-2 with a 4.60 ERA in 20 relief appearances last year for the rookie level Orem Owlz of the Pioneer League.

Nine players have been suspended this year under the minor-league program.
