OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Former AL Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon of the Oakland Athletics has been suspended for 50 games after testing positive for testosterone.
Major League Baseball made the announcement Wednesday, one week after All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera of San Francisco was suspended 50 games for a positive test for the same substance.
MLB.com posted this statement from Colon that was issued by the MLB Players Association: "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."
