Melky Cabrera Attempted To Use Fake Website To Avoid Suspension, According To Report

San Francisco Giants star Melky Cabrera created a fake website and a nonexistent product in an attempt to prove he did not knowingly take the banned substance for which he recently tested positive under Major League Baseball's drug program, according to the New York Daily News.

Cabrera will now serve a 50-game suspension for testing positive for testosterone, and his recent history surrounding the use of the banned substance is being investigated further than it would have been without the discovery of the fake website.

Federal investigators, along with MLB, have started to look into Cabrera's inner circle in a search to find out where the synthetic testosterone came from.

A season that started as a bid for National League MVP is now an investigation into the dealings of Cabrera and his associates, leaving Cabrera's teammates alone to pick up the slack until his return.
