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.

The Oakland Athletics released RP Jordan Norberto (elbow) Wednesday, May 8, in order to make room on the roster for 1B Daric Barton. The team will not rule out re-signing Norberto to a minor league deal, though, and Norberto is open to the idea. Norberto resumed throwing two days ago and made 25 throws from 60 feet Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Norberto is a nice weapon for any team's bullpen when he's healthy, which is why the A's are considering re-signing him. If they don't, expect another team to take a chance on him when he's ready to pitch in games. Norberto is unlikely to make a fantasy impact this season, though.
