06:41 AM ET 05.08 | A baseball source told the Globe the substance that triggered Manny Ramirez's 50-game suspension was human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a female fertility drug that steroid users sometimes ingest to regulate their natural testosterone levels. HCG has been banned by Major League Baseball since last year and by the International Olympic Committee since 1987. The drug is similar to Clomid, which federal prosecutors have linked to baseball stars Barry Bonds and Jason Giambi.
