Minor League Baseball announced today that Yankees right-hander Matt Marsh has been suspended 50 games because of a violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Marsh, a member of the AA Trenton Thunder, tested “positive for a drug of abuse for the second time,” per a news release on MiLB.com. It is unclear what drug triggered the positive test.

So far this season, Marsh appeared in five games for Class-A Advanced Tampa, and then was promoted to Trenton. He has pitched to a combined 3-2 record and 2.49 ERA between the two levels.

Marsh went undrafted in 2014, and then signed with the Yankees. He attended Liberty University before that.

The MiLB website lists Marsh on the restricted list.
