The Los Angeles Dodgers have suspended minor-league shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena for the remainder of the season, according to Barry Lewis of the Tulsa World.

Arruebarrena, who signed a five-year, $25-million deal out of Cuba in 2014, was issued a year-long ban last May for repeatedly violating terms of his contract. According to MLB.com's Ken Gurnick, the club cited the same language for Monday's suspension, stating that Arruebarrena failed to comply with the terms of his contract.

The Dodgers haven't disclosed the specific violations for either suspension, though the previous ban was eventually reduced to 30 days.

Arruebarrena, 26, hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2014, when he slashed .195/.244/.220 over 45 plate appearances. Through 17 games at Tulsa Double-A this year, Arruebarrena hit four homers and posted a .624 OPS.
