Doyle, 20, was St. Louis’ 20th round pick in the 2015 First-Year Player Draft from Yavapai College in Arizona. The left-handed hitter posted a line of .207/.345/.354/.699 at rookie-level Johnson City last season. The 6-foot, 185-pounder played every infield position and both corner outfield spots over his first 44 games as a professional.
Doyle will be placed on the restricted list, with his 50 games out starting with the 2016 Appalachian League season in mid-June.
Doyle is the second Cardinals minor leaguer suspended since the conclusion of the 2015 season, following pitcher Alex Reyes (marijuana).
