A week after Melky Cabrera was suspended by the MLB for failing a drug test, Oakland Atheletic’s pitcher Bartolo Colon has joined him.
Colon has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, the MLB announced earlier on Wednesday. Colon was in the midst of a rebound season with a 10-9 record and a 3.43 ERA, helping the Athletics into a wild-card contention.
