Bartolo Colon Has Been Slapped With A 50-Game Suspension After Testing Positive For A PED

August 22, 2012 – Evan Stambaugh

Here we go again… Oakland As pitcher Bartolo Colon has tested positive for testosterone and will be suspended for 50 games. This comes off the heels of Melky Cabrera’s 50-game suspension after he tested positive for testosterone.

Colon released a statement:

“I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A’s. I accept responsibility for my actions and I will serve my suspension as required by the Joint Drug Program.”

Colon is 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA for the As this season. Last season with the Yankees, he went 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA.
