Major League Baseball has suspended Diamondbacks pitching prospect Eric Smith 50 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

It's not clear what substance he tested positive for. A former second-round pick, Smith, 24, has posted a 7.11 ERA over 38 innings at the Double-A level this season.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Eric Smith from Double-A Mobile.

Smith, a second round pick from 2009, was moved to the bullpen this season after spending his first three pro seasons as a starting pitcher. The 24-year-old right-hander has averaged 4.8 BB/9 in the minors -- and that number shot up to 5.6 BB/9 this year between High-A and Double-A -- but the Diamondbacks like his power sinker and still believe he could develop into a useful pitcher.
