Phillies | Antonio Bastardo suspended

Major League Baseball announced that Philadelphia Phillies RP Antonio Bastardo will accept a 50-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.

Fantasy Tip: If you were stashing Bastardo in a deep mixed league or NL-only league in hopes that the Phils would trade Jonathan Papelbon, you can obviously forget about that. Paps is unlikely to be dealt, but if he is, there isn't really an arm worth speculating on in the Philly bullpen to take over for saves.
