NEW YORK - Minnesota Twins pitcher Anthony Swarzak was suspended for 50 games Friday for testing positive for a drug of abuse under baseball's minor league testing program.

He is the fourth minor leaguer suspended under the drug program this year, the second for a drug of abuse. There were 37 suspensions under the program last year - 32 for performance-enhancing drugs and five for drugs of abuse.
