Jared Burton: Suspended 50 games for second positive drug test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burton was suspended 50 games for a second positive test for a drug of abuse, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

This isn't going to help Burton's chances to find a team in free agency, that's for sure. After a couple of rough years with the Twins, Burton bounced around the Yankees and Rangers' system in 2015 before hitting free agency again. Any team that takes a chance on him is going to have to be willing to wait for nearly two months.
