NEW YORK -- Arizona Diamondbacks Minor League pitcher Argeny Hiciano has been suspended 50 games for a drug violation.

The commissioner's office announced the penalty Friday under the Minor League drug program.

Hiciano, a 17-year-old right-hander, tested positive for metabolites of Boldenone. He is on the roster of the Dominican Summer League Diamondbacks, and his ban will start when the team's season begins.

He is the second Dominican Summer League Diamondbacks pitcher to be suspended for 50 games this year, along with Geremia Espinosa, who is also 17 years old.

In total, there have been 29 players suspended this year under the Minor League drug program.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
