PED Suspension List (The CHEATERS)

steroidsbaseball.jpgStarting today, I’ll keep updating the list of MLB players suspended for violating enhancing drug protocol set by the CBA. In my opinion, such players simply cheated the world of baseball and reached their performance with “outside” aid. It’s time for Baseball to think about declaring void contracts and withdrawing awards assigned to such players. This will be my personal “baseball black list” and players on it simply lost my respect.

On the procedural side, they are put on the Restricted List (without pay, but continuing to accrue service time!) and don’t count against both 25 & 40-man rosters (or Reserve & Active lists in the Minors):

  1. ALEX COLOME (P, Rays): suspended on 24/03/2014, for 50 games (effective at the beginning of the 2014 season).
  2. RYAN BRAUN (OF, Brewers): suspended, on 22/07/2013, for 65 games (the remainder of the season).
  3. ALEX RODRIGUEZ (3B, Yankees): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 211 games (the remainder of 2013 plus all the 2014 the season). Suspension appealed. On Jan. 11, 2014, Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz ruled that Alex Rodriguez will receive a 162-game suspension, all the 2014 season and post-season.
  4. ANTONIO BASTARDO (P, Phillies): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  5. EVERTH CABRERA (SS, Padres): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  6. FRANCISCO CERVELLI (C, Yankees): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  7. NELSON CRUZ (OF, Rangers): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  8. FAUSTINO DE LOS SANTOS (P, Padres*): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  9. SERGIO ESCALONA (P, Astros*): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  10. FERNANDO MARTINEZ (OF, Yankees*): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  11. JESUS MONTERO (C, Mariners**): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  12. JORDAN NORBERTO (P, Free Agent): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (effective when he signs next contract).
  13. JHONNY PERALTA (SS, Tigers): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  14. CESAR PUELLO (OF, Mets**): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  15. JORDANY VALDESPIN (IF, Mets**): suspended, on 05/08/2013, for 50 games (the remainder of the season).
  16. MIGUEL TEJADA (IF, Royals): suspended, on 17/08/2013, for 105 games (the remainder of the season plus 64 games of the next)
  17. MELKY CABRERA (OF, Blue Jays), BARTOLO COLON (P, A’s) & YASMANI GRANDAL (C, Padres) already have served 50-game suspensions for their connection with the Biogenesis investigation.

*not on 40-man Roster. ** – not on the 25-man Roster. Players on minor league rosters who don’t complete to serve suspension this season (Milb schedules counts almost thirty games left), will complete it next season.
