Justice Department to Probe Professional Baseball Players for Synthetic Testosterone

 The Department of Justice is joining Major League Baseball in searching for the source of synthetic testosterone found on San Francisco Giants All-Star outfielder Melky Cabrera, the USA Today reports.

Helping steer the investigation is Jeff Novitzky, a criminal investigator for the Food and Drug Administration who led a separate probe of anabolic steroids about a decade ago.

Some predict the investigation could lead to big headlines as stars are revealed for using performance-enhancing drugs, the USA Today reported.

Cabrera received a 50-game suspension last week after testing positive for testosterone use.

“We can’t have bodyguards on these guys 24/7, Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters Sunday. “It comes down to choices. Unfortunately, I do think they get bad advice from other sources.”
