The commissioner's office announced the suspension Friday, and while it didn't name a specific drug, this certain portion of the drug abuse program lists certain recreational drugs such as cocaine, LSD, marijuana, opiates, ecstasy, GHB and PCP. Steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs are included in another category.
“We are always disappointed when these events take place,” Braves general manager Frank Wren said, “and we will continue to educate and counsel our players.”
Bullock will turn 25 in February and is currently on the Triple-A Gwinnett roster. Between Gwinnett and Double-A Mississippi last season, Bullock threw 59 2/3 innings with a 6.34 ERA. Though he struck out 67, he also gave up 56 walks.
Bullock will serve his suspension without pay for the first 50 games of the 2013 season.
