A Minnesota Twins minor leaguer was among four players suspended for 60 games by Major League Baseball under the sport's minor league drug program.

Twins minor league catcher Kerby Camacho was slapped with the suspension after testing positive for metabolite of Nadrolone – a performance-enhancing drug.

Camacho, 18, batted .093 with one home run and five RBIs in 19 games for the Twins' Gulf Coast rookie league team last season. He will not be paid during the suspension.

The Star Tribune notes that Camacho's development will take a big hit. The GCL Twins played just 59 games last season.

MLB also suspended pitcher Clario Perez of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization for 80 games, pitcher Jose Martinez of the Mets organization for 60 games and pitcher Will Dennis of Baltimore for 50 games.
