Class A pitcher Williams suspended

ST. LOUIS -- Farmhand Mark Williams drew a 50-game suspension on Friday. He is the second member of the advanced Class A Brevard County club suspended this week under the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program after testing positive for amphetamines.

Third baseman Nicky Delmonico was handed the same punishment on Monday, though he technically began serving his suspension on July 23, according to a Brewers official.

Williams, 24, was signed out of the independent Frontier League in 2011 and was part of a combined no-hitter for Class A Wisconsin in 2012. This season he had a 1.86 ERA and 10 saves in 24 relief appearances between Wisconsin and Brevard County.
