Rays Prospect Suspended 50 Games

Steve Geltz

Tampa Bay Rays minor league pitcher Steve Geltz was suspended Monday for 50 games for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

The suspension of Geltz, who is currently on the Durham Bulls roster, is effective immediately.

Geltz was acquired last season from the Los Angeles Angels for pitcher Dane De La Rosa. He was caught using a “drug of abuse,” according the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball.
