Updating a previous item, Detroit Tigers P Cesar Carrillo's 100-game suspension was related to his name surfacing in the Biogenesis documents this offseason. Carrillo is in the minors, and Major League Baseball has greater jurisdiction in suspending minor league players than major leaguers who are protected by the union.
Fantasy Tip: Carrillo's suspension probably doesn't mean much in relation to possible suspensions surrounding Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez and others that were mentioned in the Biogenesis records. Stay tuned.

Evidence has been discovered that the following players were sold performance-enhancing drugs from an anti-aging clinic in Miami called Biogenesis: New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez, Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez, Texas Rangers OF Nelson Cruz, Toronto Blue Jays OF Melky Cabrera, Detroit Tigers SP Cesar Carrillo, Oakland Athletics SP Bartolo Colon and San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal.
Fantasy Tip: Some of the details aren't clear whether the players actually received or used banned substances. It's unclear whether any suspensions will or can be handed out. Losing Gonzalez or Cruz for 50 games would have significant fantasy implications. Stay tuned to this story, which should be a prevalent one for weeks to come.
