NEW YORK (AP) - Former major league outfielder Joey Gathright has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for an amphetamine.

The commissioner's office issued the penalty Tuesday for violating the minor league drug program. It will take effect if the free agent signs with another big league organization.

The 31-year-old Gathright played seven seasons with Tampa Bay, Kansas City, the Chicago Cubs and Boston. He was in the majors with the Red Sox last year.

Gathright played this year for Triple-A Louisville in the Cincinnati system and with Bridgeport in the independent Atlantic League. He struck out leading off the game against Roger Clemens in late August during the seven-time Cy Young Award winner's comeback at age 50.
