NEW YORK -- Two minor league baseball players have been suspended for 50 games each after testing positive for steroids.

The commissioner's office says Cubs right-hander Enyelberth Pena, who is with Chicago's Dominican summer league team, tested positive for nandrolone, an anabolic steroid. Padres right-hander Miguel Severino, also in the Dominican summer league, had a positive test for stanozolol.

The suspensions begin immediately.
