The players, both pitchers, are 20-year-old Roman Carrasco and Luis Figuera, 17. Their suspensions carry into 2009 because there are fewer than 50 games remaining in the 2008 season.
Major League Baseball said Friday night that both were tested positive for anabolic steroids -- Carrasco for nandralone and Figuera for stenozolol metabolites.

Robert Hunt once grabbed a female police officer by the throat during a barroom brawl. It took several bouncers to release his grip, according to state records.
Just two months back, Michael Kenney was stopped by officers who suspected he was driving drunk. Instead of agreeing to a DUI test, he fought back, his criminal charges indicate.
Yet up until this week, Hunt still was a practicing doctor and Kenney a licensed pharmacist.
That changed Thursday, when federal and local agents arrested them both, accusing them of helping people illegally obtain prescription drugs, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
