San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera is currently serving a 50 game suspension for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. It’s his contract year, so he was trying to ensure that he was going to get paid this summer.
The ironic thing about Melky’s situation is that his suspension will be lifted with just five games remaining in the season, meaning he would be available for the playoffs. But according to CSN Bay Area, the Giants want no parts of Cabrera when he returns, even if he is an upgrade.
Cabrera disgraced himself and the team, so I guess they want to wash their hands of the entire situation.
The club is not commenting on Cabrera’s situation, but all indications are that upper management has zero interest in the All-Star Game MVP playing another game in orange and black.
