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.
