Cabrera Suspended For Rest Of Season

Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games Wednesday following a positive test for testosterone, putting an abrupt end to what had been an MVP-caliber regular season and throwing the San Francisco Giants’ playoff hopes into doubt. The suspension would extend into the playoffs if the Giants advance.

Cabrera leads the National League with 159 hits, and is second in batting average behind Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen. Cabrera’s penalty was the first for a high-profile player since last year’s NL MVP, Ryan Braun, had his suspension overturned by an arbitrator last winter.

In a statement, Cabrera says he accepts his suspension and now “will try to move on with my life.”

 

Cabrera is batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBIs in his first season with San Francisco.
