Houser, Andrus, Suarez signings

Former Biscuits James Houser, Erold Andrus and Cesar Suarez have found teams for 2010.

Houser is headed to the Florida Marlins, but he still has to serve some time on his 2007 drug suspension.

The left-handed pitcher missed Montgomery's last 16 regular-season games that year for violating the minor-league drug policy. When he went on Tampa Bay's 40-man roster that offseason, he didn't have to finish the suspension. Now, he's back on a minor-league contract and has to do the time. The looming suspension also played a part in Houser not finding a team after the Rays released him this summer.

Andrus, an outfielder, has signed with the San Francisco Giants. He spent last year with the Florence Freedom of the independent Frontier League.

Suarez, an infielder, was released this summer by the Biscuits and hooked on with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the independent Atlantic League.
