Bartolo Colon, the 2005 AL Cy Young winner, has failed a drug test according to Jon Heyman.

What is a pudgy pitcher like Colon doing taking steroids? In 2010, Colon was out of baseball with shoulder problems. He received a stem cell injection and came back to pitch for the Yankees last season. Colon has thrown 152 innings for the Oakland A’s this season, so the Nationals thought he should be shut down soon anyway. The A’s are just a half-game out of the wild card.
