NEW YORK (AP) - Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Christopher O'Hare has been suspended for the first 50 games of the season for a second positive test for a drug of abuse under baseball’s minor league drug program.

A 23-year-old left-hander, O'Hare was selected out of Fisher College in the 23rd round of last June’s amateur draft. He was 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA in five innings over five relief appearances for the Gulf Coast League Phillies, Clearwater of the Class A Florida State League and Lakewood of the Class A South-Atlantic League.

O'Hare is on Lakewood’s roster.

There have been 10 suspensions this year under the minor league program.
