Salaries of some players linked to Biogenesis

A look at the 2013 salaries of some of the players linked to Biogenesis. Figures were obtained by The Associated Press from management and player sources.

Baseball's drug agreement calls for a 50-game suspension for a first violation, a 100-game penalty for a second and a lifetime ban for a third.

A 50-game suspension, if served entirely during the 2013 regular season, would cost a player 50/183 of his salary. A 100-game suspension, if served entirely during the 2013 regular season, would cost a player 100/183 of his salary.

Melky Cabera, Bartolo Colon and Yasmani Grandal have served 50-game suspensions announced last year following positive tests for elevated testosterone.

Figures for four players include both major league and minor league salaries. FA stands for free agent:
