Yonaiker Oropeza, an 18-year-old right-hander, has a 4.50 ERA in two relief appearances this season for the Dominican Summer League Nationals.

Both suspensions were announced Tuesday. There have been 71 suspensions this year under the minor league drug program and 13 under the major league program.
