Report: Manny Ramirez tests positive for PEDs

Move over A-Rod. There's another hefty slugger joining you on baseball's busted list.

Manny Ramirez The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Major League Baseball will announce later today that Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended for 50 games.

In his first full season as a Dodger, Ramirez is batting .348 with six home runs and 20 RBIs. L.A. has jumped out to a 21-8 record -- best in the majors -- and a 13-0 record at home, which set the modern major league record for a home winning streak to start a season.

But we will have to see how the Dodgers survive this one.

The 50-game suspension will cost Ramirez $7.7 million, 31% of his $25-million salary because players in violation of baseball's drug policy are not paid during suspensions.

The Dodgers are set to visit the Marlins May 15-17.
