(3/24/2012) Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan said minor-league pitcher Aaron Thompson is facing a 50-game suspension for violating baseballs drug policy. No penalty has been announced by the commissioners office involving the 25-year-old left-hander, who is not on the Twins 40-man major league roster. Thompson still has time to appeal. Ryan said Saturday that the suspension involved recreational drug use.
