Mets Minor Leaguers Doyle and Moviel Suspended 50 Games For Substance Violation
New York Mets catcher Charles “Dock” Doyle and pitcher Scott Moviel have been suspended 50 games each under baseball’s minor league drug program.
Both were penalized Monday for second violations involving a drug of abuse.
Doyle, 25, hit .296 with two homers and 11 RBIs last year for the Class A St. Lucie Mets. He was a fifth-round draft pick from Coastal Carolina in 2008 and a New York-Penn League All-Star the following year.
Moviel, a 6-foot-11 right-hander, was 5-10 with a 5-10 ERA in 23 starts and three relief appearances last year at St. Lucie. The 23-year-old, now on the roster of Double-A Binghamton, was a second-round selection in 2007 from St. Edward High in Cleveland.
Thirteen players have been suspended this year under the minor league program, including five for drugs of abuse.
