NEW YORK — Two minor league players have been suspended 50 games after testing positive for banned drugs.

Oakland pitcher Gary Daley Jr., a former Cal Poly standout, and free agent first baseman-outfielder Austin Gallagher were penalized Friday by the commissioner’s office.

Daley tested positive for Methylphenidate. The 27-year-old righty went 10-10 with a 5.11 ERA for Double-A Midland last season.

Gallagher tested positive for Methylhexaneamine. He hit .283 with 15 home runs and 74 RBI last season for Class A Rancho Cucamonga in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ organization.

There have been six suspensions this year under the minor league program.
