Orioles Minor League Catcher Brian Ward Suspended

NEW YORK (AP) — Baltimore Orioles catcher Brian Ward has been suspended for 50 games for a second violation involving a drug of abuse under the minor league drug program.

The 26-year-old is on the roster of the Class A Aberdeen IronBirds of the New York-Penn League.

He hit .254 with seven homers and 32 RBIs for Frederick of the Class A Carolina League last year.

The suspension announced Wednesday was the 28th this year under the minor league drug program.
