According to industry sources, Single-A Frederick catcher Brian Ward is facing a 50-game suspension for violating baseball's drug policy.

Ward, who was invited to spring training before being reassigned to minor league camp on March 11, batted .254/.339/.382 with 22 doubles, seven homers and 32 RBIs in 104 games at Frederick.

Ward threw out 52.6 percent of runners attempting to steal last season and is widely regarded as the organization's top defensive catcher.

Orioles officials declined comment on the suspension.

I gotta say - I didn't see this one coming. The O's have just been raving about this guy too, this really sucks for the organization and definitely him. Good luck with that reputation there Ward..
