§ Perez becomes the first player in history suspended for amphetamines. This would have actually been Perez second positive test for a Stimulant. First time violations currently do not result in suspension and are not reported publicly. A second positive results in a suspension.

§ Perez becomes the first player in history suspended for amphetamines a second time. This is his third positive test for a Stimulant. First time violations currently do not result in suspension and are not reported publicly. A second positive results in a suspension. If he tests positive again for amphetamines he can be banned for life, at the Commissioner's discretion.

ß The suspension of Cameron, who is currently eligible to file for free agency, will be effective at the start of the 2008 regular season. Cameron was most recently with the San Diego Padres.

∩ The suspension of Serafini, who is currently a free agent, would be effective at the start of the 2008 regular season, if he were to sign with a major league team. Serafini was most recently with the Colorado Rockies.

± The suspensions of Guillen and Gibbons will be effective at the start of the 2008 regular season. The 15-day suspension assigned is not a standard length by way of the Drug Agreement. Based upon the length of time, there is a current assumption that the MLBPA negotiated the length of the suspension. The Drug Agreement specifies that 50 gms is the suspension length for a first violation for PEDs.
