Orioles minor league infielder Ryan Adams has received a 25-game suspension after testing positive for an Amphetamine in violation of Major League Baseball’s joint drug prevention and treatment program, MLB announced Friday.

The suspension of Adams, who is currently on the roster at Triple-A Norfolk, is effective at the start of next season. Adams had been a member of the Orioles' 40-Man roster at the time the test was administered.

The Orioles declined comment on the situation.

Adams did not play in the majors last season. He batted .281 in 29 games in 2011.

The Orioles selected him in the second round of the 2006 first-year player draft out of Jesuit High School in New Orleans.
