Bartolo Colon, the veteran pitcher for the Oakland Athletics, has been suspended for 50 games after he tested positive for testosterone, which is on Major League Baseball's list of banned substances. According to CBS Sports, Colon resurrected his career after a controversial stem-cell treatment. He is 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA for the A's this year after going 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA with the Yankees last year. MLB made the announcement about Colon Wednesday, a week after San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera received a 50-game suspension for also testing positive for testosterone.
