Former Cedar Rapids Kernels pitcher Tommy Mendoza has been suspended for 50 games for violating minor league baseball’s drug policy. Mendoza, 20, was playing for high-Class A Rancho Cucamonga. He pitched all of the 2006 season with the Kernels and part of last season.

Mendoza was apparently suspended for amphetamines. He was 4-12 with a 4.73 earned run average in 20 games this season for Rancho.

Here’s link to an Inland Daily Bulletin story on the matter:

You’ve been around minor league baseball long enough, do you think it’s surprising this doesn’t occur more often?
