Cleveland Indians pitcher Tyler Sturdevant has been suspended for 50 games under baseball's minor league drug program following a positive test for a banned amphetamine.

The 29-year-old right-hander is currently on the roster of the Columbus Clippers. He spent last season with the Clippers and the Akron RubberDucks, going 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and eight saves in 46 relief appearances. The suspension is the 35th this year under the minor league program.
