NEW YORK — Former New York Yankees prospect Raimfer Salinas was suspended for 80 games Monday under baseball’s minor league drug program following a positive test for the performing-enhancing substance Nandrolone.

The 22-year-old outfielder was released by the Yankees’ Class A Tampa Tarpons on Thursday. He was 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout against Lakeland on April 8 in his only game this season after hitting .225 with five homers and 25 RBIs in 64 games for Tampa last year.

Salinas signed with the Yankees in December 2017 for a $1.85 million bonus. He split 2018 with the Dominican Summer League Yankees and the Gulf Coast Yankees, spent 2019 with the GCL team and 2021 with the Florida Complex League Yankees.

Six players have been disciplined under the minor league program this year.
