MLB • Former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon of the Oakland Athletics was suspended for 50 games Wednesday after testing positive for testosterone.
Major League Baseball made the announcement one week after All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera of the San Francisco Giants was suspended 50 games for a positive test for the same substance.
The 39-year-old Colon is 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA in 24 starts this season, his first with the A's, and has a 171-122 record in 15 big league seasons. He was due to start Thursday in Tampa.
Oakland, which hasn't made the playoffs since 2006, began Wednesday a half-game out in the AL wild-card race.

Peters easily pulled away from Red Horse Racing teammate Parker Kligerman on a green-white-checkered restart that was set up by Cale Gale's crash on lap 193.
