Melky Cabrera Suspension: Giants Cancel Planned Cabrera T-Shirt Giveaway

The San Francisco Giants were planning on giving away 20,000 Melky Cabrera T-shirts to fans attending their September 8 game, but following Cabrera's suspension for a positive testosterone test, the team canceled the T-shirt order.

Instead of giving away Cabrera T-shirts, the Giants switched the giveaway to Angel Pagan T-shirts. Luckily, for the Giants, they were able to cancel the original order for Cabrera T-shirts before the supplier began production.

"We were able to cancel the order in time and we're happy that fans will receive a T-shirt as scheduled," said Giants vice president Staci Slaughter, according to

The cancelled giveaway comes less than a week after Cabrera was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a performance enhancing substance.

the first 20,000 fans will now be given a T-shirt with the "Gigantes" logo on the front and Pagan's name and No. 16 on the back.
