Former major league pitcher Matt Kinney and a
minor leaguer in the New York Mets' system have been suspended 50
games for drug violations.

They were penalized Tuesday under the minor league drug program
after testing positive for amphetamines.

The 33-year-old Kinney last pitched in the majors in 2005 with
San Francisco. He is playing with the Giants' Triple-A team in
Fresno.

Mets minor league pitcher Lachlan Hodge is at rookie level
Kingsport.

The suspensions take effect immediately and end their seasons.
