Butler Traditional High School alum Seth Bynum was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball Thursday for testing positive for an amphetamine. “The amphetamine violated the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program,” Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post reports. “The suspension is effective immediately.” Bynum is a second baseman with the Syracuse Chiefs, the AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
The Louisville native spent two seasons at Indiana University and was the Montreal Expos’ 38th round pick in 2003. He signed with the Expos following the 2004 collegiate season as a draft-and-follow in May. Bynum was batting .248 with four home runs and 17 RBI in 29 games at the time of his suspension. (Read m0re)
