Former Met Suspended

Former Met, Jorge Sosa, now pitching for the Seattle Mariners was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for amphetamines.
Sosa was 4-1 with a 7.06 ERA in 20 relief appearances with the New York Mets this season before his release on May 20. The Houston Astros signed him to a minor league contract eight days later but he was waived in July.
The 31-year-old signed with the Mariners on July 25 and was assigned to Class AAA Tacoma of the Pacific Coast League.
