Major League Baseball announced that New York Yankees C Francisco Cervelli will accept a 50-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.

Major League Baseball announced the 12 names of those that will accept 50-game suspensions for their involvement in the Biogenesis scandal: Texas Rangers OF Nelson Cruz, Detroit Tigers SS Jhonny Peralta, Philadelphia Phillies RP Antonio Bastardo, New York Mets INF Jordany Valdespin, San Diego Padres SS Everth Cabrera, New York Yankees C Francisco Cervelli, Seattle Mariners C Jesus Montero, New York Mets OF Cesar Puello, Houston Astros RP Sergio Escalona, free-agent RP Fautino De Los Santos (Padres), free-agent RP Jordan Norberto (Athletics) and New York Yankees OF Fernando Martinez.
Fantasy Tip: These players will all miss the rest of the season, but it's unknown if any of them will play in postseason games if their team is eligible. You can safely drop all of these guys in single-year formats.

Major League Baseball is expected to hand down their list of Biogenesis suspensions Monday, Aug. 5. New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez, Texas Rangers OF Nelson Cruz, San Diego Padres SS Everth Cabrera, Detroit Tigers SS Jhonny Peralta and New York Yankees C Francisco Cervelli are among the list of names that are expected to be involved. It's unclear how long each player's suspension will be and which players plan on appealing the ruling.
Fantasy Tip: Popular opinion is that all of these players will take some sort of suspension without appeal, aside from A-Rod. Stay tuned on this ongoing scandal. If you own any of these players, hopefully you have already made backup plans to carry out the rest of the season without them.
