Marlon Byrd, an 11-year Major League veteran who was released by the Red Sox earlier this month, received a 50-game suspension Monday after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.
Byrd is currently a free agent, so he will be placed on the restricted list for the duration of his suspension, which will begin immediately and will be in effect through Aug. 20. It will result in the loss of 50 days of pay.
The outfielder, an All-Star with the Cubs in 2010, tested positive for Tamoxifen, the Commissioner’s Office said.
