Chattanooga prospect busted for drugs

Chattanooga Lookouts outfielder Andrew Lambo, the seventh-ranked prospect in the Los Angeles Dodgers' system by Baseball America, was suspended for 50 games today.

Lambo tested positive for a "drug of abuse" and this is his second offense, according to the Major League Baseball release. A first offense is confidential and leads only to counseling and treatment.

The 21-year-old was also caught smoking marijuana as a high school sophomore, according to the annual Baseball America Prospect Handbook.

Lambo, LA's No. 1 prospect a year ago, was hitting .342 with 13 RBIs and 16 runs scored in 19 games this season.
