The Oakland A's nipped team homophobia in the bud Sunday by indefinitely suspending top minor league pitching prospect, Ian Krol, for tweeting what was reported by the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser as a "gay slur along with some other offensive language."

The tweet on Krol's Twitter account has since been deleted. This is not the first time that the 20-year-old Krol has gotten himself into trouble. He was suspended from playing baseball in his senior year of high school for an alcohol-related incident.
