Sosa Suspended 50 Games

Ex-major league pitcher Jorge Sosa, currently with the Seattle Mariners, has been suspended for fifty games after testing positive under baseball's minor league drug program. Sosa, 31, tested positive for amphetamine, which is considered a performance enhancer at the Triple-A level. This could potentially end Sosa's career in the majors, unless he can prove he can still pitch in the majors in May of 2009.

In 254 major league appearance, Sosa is 40-49 with a 4.67 ERA with the Rays, Braves, Mets, and the Cardinals.
