Melky Cabrera is the latest baseball player to be caught using performance-enhancing drugs. He has been suspended for 50 games by MLB.

The Giants outfielder tested positive for testosterone and has admitted to using a banned substance.

"My positive test was the result of my use of a substance I should not have used," said Cabrera in a statement. "I accept my suspension under the Joint Drug Program and I will try to move on with my life. I am deeply sorry for my mistake and I apologize to my teammates, to the San Francisco Giants organization and to the fans for letting them down."

The suspension comes during Cabrera's best season as a pro. He started in this year's All-Star Game and won the MVP award. He's batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBI with San Francisco.
