Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera said Wednesday he hasn't been told by Major League Baseball whether he will face a suspension for his ties to the Florida clinic Biogenesis accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.
Cabrera, who wasn't in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game at Oakland, said he is following media reports that he will not be suspended again, but noted he had heard nothing definitive from MLB. The 2012 All-Star game MVP received a 50-game suspension on Aug. 15 last year for testing positive for elevated testosterone while playing for the World Series champion Giants. San Francisco chose not to add him to the postseason roster even after he was eligible to return.
''Nothing's been told to me,'' Cabrera said. ''I served my suspension last year, but MLB has never told me that it's OK now. I'm seeing it in the press, but I don't know.''
