Melky Cabrera has been suspended by Major League Baseball for testing positive for a banned substance. The suspension is for 50 games and when this decision was announced the Giants had 45 games remaining in their season.

The Giants were 64-53, when Cabrera was lost. If they make the playoffs, Cabrera will miss the first five of those games. If not, then he will miss the first five games of 2013.

The San Francisco Giants learned about the suspension about an hour before their game against the Washington Nationals. They proceeded to lose to the Nationals and fell one game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.
