Melky Cabrera. 50 game ban for Testosterone

Postby SpecialFNK » Wed Aug 15, 2012 2:47 pm

MLB announced today that #Giants Melky Cabrera has received 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Testosterone


mlbtraderumors.
Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for a performance enchancing drug, reports ESPN's Jorge Arangure (on Twitter). MLB has confirmed the suspension, which takes effect immediately.


EDIT: rotoworld.
MLB suspended Melky Cabrera for 50 games without pay for testing positive for Testosterone.
Huge news. Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com hears that the test happened around the All-Star break and has been hung up in the appeals process since. The 50-game suspension will keep him sidelined for the rest of the regular season. It's a tough blow to the Giants' playoff hopes and will have a big impact on Cabrera's potential payday in free agency this offseason. The 28-year-old was batting .346/.390/.516 with with 11 home runs, 60 RBI and a .906 OPS in 113 games played this season.

so it has already gone through the appeals process.

don't think 'roids explains a .379 BABIP but I still think it's funny.

i dunno, it's not like he's hitting for power. does testosterone have a positive effect on BABIP?

in all seriousness though I don't really know what kind of affects testosterone has on the body, it's mostly just strength and endurance right?
