The 38-year-old Byrd is the second Indians outfielder to be suspended this season; Abraham Almonte received an 80-game ban in February.

Byrd joins Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon and Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Chris Colabello as high-profile players to test positive for PEDs this season.

In 34 games this season, Byrd is hitting .270/.326/.452 with five homers and 19 RBI. He has topped 20 homers in each of the past three seasons.
