Toronto Blue Jays
Today is the day that the Biogenesis suspensions are likely going to be announced and more names are on the list of players that will be suspended.
Players with 50-game suspensions: Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Antonio Bastardo, Nelson Cruz, Sergio Escalona and Jordany Valdespin.
Other players who will be suspended are Francisco Cervelli, Jesus Montero, Cesar Puello, Fautino de los Santos, Fernando Martinez and Jordan Noberto. These players will likely be suspended for 50-games, but nothing has been made official of that yet.
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will be suspended, but MLB has said nothing about the possible length of A-Rod's ban. Recent reports suggested he will be suspended for the rest of this year and all of next year, but that has not been confirmed or announced.
The players who will not be getting suspended suspended are Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon, Gio Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal and Danny Valencia. Gio Gonzalez only received legal substances and will not be suspended.
The biggest name in this investigation is Alex Rodriguez and he will be suspended, but we just don't know how long he will be suspended for. With teams losing players while they are in playoff contention, this is a blow to their playoff chances. The length of the rest of the players' suspensions should come out sometime this afternoon, so stay tuned here for more.

Jhonny Peralta's 50-game suspension was hardly a surprise, as it was more of a case of when than if it would happen. As such, the Detroit Tigers had time to prepare, and they took advantage of that opportunity by acquiring young shortstop Jose Iglesias from the Boston Red Sox in a recent three-team trade. While at one point it appeared to be a near sure bet that Peralta would...
Based on Sunday’s Outside the Lines report that suspensions will be handed down on Monday, it's safe to say that Jhonny Peralta will be one of them. What does that mean for his future with the Tigers? Well, given the Jose Iglesias trade, it's highly unlikely the Tigers would be looking to resign him this off-season. However, that doesn't answer what's in store for...
63-45, 1st place, 3 games up on Cle.
Jhonny Peralta has nerves of steel. Over his last ten games he’s hitting .351 with 3 HR and 8 RBIs. I don’t know how he’s not vomiting every time up the plate with what he’s facing on Monday. This reminds me of that time my boss called me into his office during a summer internship. Had he seen the email? Or had he not?. Rumors were that...
On Monday afternoon I had the opportunity to talk Detroit Tigers on The Drive With Jack Ebling radio show, 730 a.m. out of Lansing. We discussed the Jhonny Peralta suspension and its impact on the team as well as the A-Rod situation.

DETROIT -- The clock finally ran out on Jhonny Peralta.
Although it hasn't been made official by Major League Baseball, Ken Rosenthal reported that Peralta will accept a 50-game suspension for his connection to the Biogenesis clinic in Miami.
Peralta was one of several players suspended in a process that started on July 22, when Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game ban.
Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta has reportedly accepted a 50-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s policy against performance-enhancing drugs. The long-awaited news has been first broken by FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.
Among players accepting 50-game suspensions: #Rangers’ Cruz, #Tigers’ Peralta, #Phlllies’ Bastardo, #Mets’ Valdespin, #Padres’...
I got some good news and some bad news.
To get the misery over with, we’ll started with the bad news.
The Toronto Blue Jays did not have a good weekend in Anaheim as the Los Angeles Angels won three out of four games.
The Jays got hammered in the first game 8-2. Josh Johnson continues to struggle on the mound as he gave up 10 hits, six earned runs, and two walks. Johnson also...
For a while, Biogenesis didn’t exist. Then for a while, Biogenesis did exist, but we didn’t know anything about it. Then we started to know a lot about it, and in particular a lot about its distribution of performance-enhancing drugs, but it didn’t seem like baseball would be able to hand out much in the way of discipline. Then it seemed like baseball would be able to deliver...
Padres’ Cabrera Accepts Suspension
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (Twitter links), twelve players, including Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera and Padres minor league pitcher Fautino De Los Santos, have accepted 50-game suspensions for their connections to the Biogenesis PED investigation.
In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task.
The Padres picked up Ian Kennedy along with series victories against...
This has been dragged out for a while, but for players like Nelson Cruz and Jhonny Peralta, they’ve accepted a 50-game ban that starts immediately. A-Rod was banned for 211 games through the end of the 2014 season, but he’s fighting it so A-Rod is expected to play for the Yankees tonight.
It was hard to imagine a player who could be hated more than Barry Bonds, but Alex Rodriguez...
Ian Kennedy won his San Diego debut, his first victory in more than two months, and Everth Cabrera, facing a 50-game suspension in baseball's latest drug scandal, had two hits and two RBIS as the Padres beat the New York Yankees 6-3 on Sunday.
The Padres took two of three from the Yankees, who got only 2 2-3 innings out of Phil Hughes.
Kennedy was acquired from the Arizona...
Fantasy owners have been waiting months for the metaphorical whip that could be getting cracked this Monday due to alleged PED use across baseball. The league is expected to announce disciplinary action for possibly 20 players. Many, if not all of these suspensions, are expected to last the rest of the 2013 season and the fantasy implications that follow could cost many their chance...
The top contenders in the AL Central have been flexing their muscles lately with the Detroit Tigers winning eight straight and 12 of 13 while the Cleveland Indians have won 10 of 11.
The Tigers have been winning even without Miguel Cabrera and it's not clear if the reigning AL MVP or Jhonny Peralta will be in the lineup for Monday night's opener of a four-game set in Cleveland...
Bud Norris' first start for the Baltimore Orioles was a success as he knocked off his former team.
His second comes against the San Diego Padres, who have played well of late but will now be without their lone All-Star.
Norris takes the mound as Baltimore begins an eight-game trip Tuesday night in San Diego, which will be without Everth Cabrera.
Cabrera was one of 13 players...
