10:24 AM ET 07.30 | Since Melky Cabrera was suspended last season after testing positive for testosterone, Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons doesn't believe the outfielder will receive another suspension. Cabrera received a 50-game suspension on Aug. 15 in the midst of a very successful season with the San Francisco Giants. He was hitting a .346 batting average with a .516 slugging percentage (both career highs), and nearly all of his stats on were pace to shatter previous seasons' records before being caught. Cabrera has a .284 BA and has 96 hits and 30 RBIs this season, compared to 159 hits and 60 RBIs from a season ago. He's missed time this year due to injury.

If he quits taking PEDs he might not get suspended.

I would think that if MLB can link him to something other than what he was suspended for last season, then he may go down after all.

Gotta love the Blue Jays.. Dude gets busted for cheating, what do they do? Throw money at him. Keep paving the way for change, Toronto.

He won't be suspended unless there is Biogenisis activity after last year's suspension. He's gone for 100 days if they have something after August of last year.
