The St. Louis Cardinals organization will be without one of their young arms for the foreseeable future.

St. Louis announced on Friday that minor league pitcher Perry DellaValle has been suspended 50 games for violating the league’s drug policy.

DellaValle, 23, was a 27th-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2018 from Seton Hall College.

He’s been awesome in his short minor league stint, pitching to a 2.84 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 31 games (26 starts) between rookie level and Single-A.
