Salome Suspended for Doping

Well, this isn't good:

Brewers prospect Angel Salome was suspended 50 games after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing substance.
They caught a very good prospect this time. Salome, who is listed at 5-foot-7 and 190 pounds, is a catcher with a fair amount of offensive potential. The Brewers were looking at him as their catcher of the future, though he wasn't likely to be ready until 2010. He was hitting .318/.341/.465 in 258 AB for Single-A Brevard County.
