Ex-Met Jason Pridie, who signed a minor league deal during the offseason with the Oakland Athletics, has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for a violation of the drug prevention program, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The newspaper reported the suspension is for recreational rather than performance-enhancing drug use.

The Mets removed Pridie from the 40-man roster in November and he became a free agent.
