Pitchers Roman Carrasco and Luis Figuera, both with the Pirates' affiliate in the Venezuelan Summer League, today were suspended for 50 games each after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Carrasco, 20, was 7-1 with a 2.82 earned run average. Figuera, 17, was 6-2 with a 3.09 ERA. Both will miss the rest of this season and the first part of next season.

"We have to continue to educate guys so they know what they're putting into their bodies," said Kyle Stark, the Pirates' player personnel director. "Both guys were performing well. We were encouraged by their performance."
