New, 124 comments

According to the LA Times, Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, and will be suspended 50 games. From the article:

The test result and suspension is expected to be announced later today.

 

The suspension will cost Ramirez $7.7 million, or roughly 31% of his $25-million salary. Players in violation of baseball's drug policy are not paid during suspensions.

We'll be on the lookout for an official announcement and further confirmation.
