Dodgers purchased the contract of RHP Jose Dominguez from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dominguez will replace Peter Moylan, who was assigned to Triple-A before Saturday's game. The hard-throwing 22-year-old right-hander was suspended for 25 games in November for violating baseball's drug policy, a suspension he served to begin this season. In 25 1/3 innings since his suspension, Dominguez has a 1.78 ERA with 40 strikeouts between Double-A and Triple-A this season. His fastball has reportedly hit 103 miles per hour at times this year.

Dodgers minor league right-hander Jose Dominguez was suspended 25 games for violating baseball’s drug policy.

No word on what he tested positive for. Dominguez, now 22 years old, joined the Dodgers as a 16-year-old back in 2007 and has a 4.57 ERA over five seasons in the minors. He has only pitched in five games above A-ball.

Jose Dominguez made his pro debut Wednesday and struck out seven in two scoreless innings for the GCL Dodgers.

Two of the strikeouts came on wild pitches. The only hit off him was a bunt single. Dominguez, a 16-year-old out of the Dominican Republic, had just signed with the Dodgers this week, getting a reported $50,000 bonus. He's very polished for someone his age, which is why the Dodgers wasted no time in assigning him to one of their affiliates.
