Stumpf tested positive for the drug dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, Major League Baseball said. His suspension is effective today.

Stumpf was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 9th round of the 2012 MLB draft. He then was selected this winter in the Rule 5 draft by the Philadelphia Phillies.

Stumpf has a career 3.21 ERA in the minor leagues, with 20 wins and 23 losses as a starter.
