DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) – The Detroit Tigers say that minor-league pitcher Cesar Carrillo has been suspended 100 games without pay by Major League Baseball.

DannyKnoblerCBS tweets that Carrillo was suspended for ‘violating drug program.’

A January story in the Miami New Times reported that Carrillo was one of 7 baseball players involved in a steroid probe investigation.

The Tigers signed Carrillo to a minor-league contract in June of 2012, and stated Friday that Carrillo’s suspension will be effective at the start of the 2013 championship season.

Carrillo was drafted by the San Diego Padres in 2005.
