Twins Minor Leaguer Suspended
Anthony Swarzak, who plays for the Minnesota Twins' Class AA team in New Britain, Missouri, was suspended fof 50 for violating the leagues' drug-abuse policy. It was his second drug offense since he joined the team. The Pioneer Press did not say what drug Swarzak had taken, but it was in the "abuse" category of drugs which includes marijuana, cocaine, amphetamises and other narcotics not considered performance-enhancing. Lacking that information, the goal of the story is to briefly explain the league's drug policy and move the story forward with some quotes by Twins officials, which was done fairly well, in my opinion.
The Star Tribune covered the story in much the same manner, while quoting Twins General Manager Terry Ryan more frequently.
