Major League Baseball has suspended Abraham Almonte 80 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
Almonte tested positive for Boldenone. The outfielder had been in line to serve a major role -- perhaps as the starting center fielder -- at least while Michael Brantley (shoulder) was out, but that's obviously not going to happen now. The newly-signed Will Venable is likely now poised for a bigger role and the Indians have also been connected to Austin Jackson. Feb 26 - 4:10 PM
