Former Tiger Perez suspended 50 games
By Jason Beck / | 10/05/11 8:45 PM ET

NEW YORK -- Former Tigers farmhand Timo Perez was suspended for 50 games for violating the Minor League drug program.

An MLB press release stated that Perez, whose last big league time came with Detroit in 2007, tested positive for ritalinic acid and methylphenidate. It's a first-time violation for the veteran lefty hitter, who rejoined the Tigers organization and batted .304 with 32 doubles and 50 RBIs in 122 games for Triple-A Toledo.

The 36-year-old outfielder is currently a free agent. His suspension will take effect immediately once he signs with a Major League organization.
