Rangers Prospect Suspended 50 Games

For the first time since 2012, a Texas Rangers prospect has been suspended for violating the commissioner's drug policy after Chris Grayson was handed a 50-game suspension on Thursday after testing positive for amphetamines.

Grayson, who isn't considered a big-league prospect, is a 25-year-old outfielder who split time between High-A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Frisco last season.

During that time, he hit .265 with five home runs and 36 RBIs.

As The Dallas Morning News pointed out, Grayson is the first Rangers prospect to be suspended for drug use since Jake Skole in 2012, who also tested positive for amphetamines and was a more highly regarded prospect than Grayson.
