Manny Ramirez has been suspended 50 games for a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs, the Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site Thursday morning.

Ramirez is expected to attribute the positive test results to medication he received from a doctor for a personal medical issue, the Times reported, citing a source familiar with the matter.

The Dodgers informed AAA outfielder Xavier Paul Thursday morning that he was being promoted to the big-league club, according to the report.

The suspension will cost Ramirez nearly $8 million of his $25 million salary. Players are not paid while they serve suspensions related to baseball’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

If Ramirez begins serving the suspension immediately, he will not be eligible to return until early July.

Manny is a juicehead.. This explains last year’s incredible second half. It was too good to be true. -TO
