Add another former Yankee to the list of suspended players. Today it’s Bartolo Colon who joins Melky Cabrera. Here’s the email announcement from Major League Baseball…

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Testosterone, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

The suspension of Colon is effective immediately.

UPDATE, 1:57 p.m.: Like Cabrera, Colon has also admitted to using. Here’s his released 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.”
