Texas Ranger minor league pitcher Martire Garcia suspended for PEDs

LHP Martire Garcia, currently with AA Frisco, has been suspended 50 games for using performance enhancing drugs

Texas Rangers minor league lefthanded pitcher Martire Garcia has been suspended 50 games for performance enhancing drugs, according to the beat guys on Twitter.

Garcia, Dominican listed at 5'11", 150 lbs., had pitched 4 shutout innings for AA Frisco this season prior to the suspension.  I'd never heard of him before seeing Tepid tweet about him a few days ago.  There's a big gap in his B-R page for 2012 and 2013, so I'm not sure if he was pitching in Korea or walking the either like Caine from Kung Fu or what.

Garcia, 24, had previously pitched in the Twins' organization from 2007-11.
