7 Cub Minor Leaguers fail drug program

Today it was announced that 38 minor league players violated "Major League Baseball's Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program." Of the 38 players 7 were in the Cubs minor league system, with 2 of the 7 guys having been released since the testing. From the article it sounds like these were only the teams that have minor league camps in Arizona. The two players that violated the program and have since been cut are Kevin Reinking and Jesus Medrano. The other guys that violated the program in the system are: Carlos Vasquez, Matthew Craig, Robinson Chirinos, David Cash and Oscar Bernard. Of all the players that violated the policy Matthew Craig is the only player I have heard of and he needs to reduce his strikeouts before he can emerge from a mid-range prospect.
