SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Giants canceled an order for 20,000 Melky Cabrera T-shirts just in time.
Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter says the order was stopped just before printing after Cabrera received a 50-game suspension from Major League Baseball last Wednesday following a positive test of testosterone.
The shirts that had featured last month's All-Star game MVP have been replaced by a "Gigantes" version with outfielder Angel Pagan's name on the back, and they will be handed out in a giveaway for a Sept. 8 game against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers.
Earlier Tuesday, baseball Commissioner Bud Selig banned Cabrera associate Juan Nunez — a consultant to the outfielder's agents — from all team clubhouses.
