December

Rays minor league outfielder Cody Rogers has received a 50-game suspension without pay for refusing to take an off-season drug test, a violation of the minor league drug prevention and treatment program.

Rogers, a seventh-round pick in 2009, hit .244 in 112 games for Class-A Charlotte.

The MLB release states Rogers is on the Triple-A Durham roster, and that the suspension will be effective at the start of next season.
