Los Angeles Angels shortstop Keith Grieshaber was banned 100 games for a third positive test for a drug of abuse. He was on the roster of Class A Inland Empire.
Miami left-hander Scott Squier was penalized 50 games after a second positive test for a drug of abuse. He was on the roster of Triple-A New Orleans.
