San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, who allegedly created a fake website for a fake product to try to make a failed drug test look like an accident, could face a longer suspension for his attempted deception, reports CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Cabrera tested positive for testosterone and, in an attempt to avoid a 50-game ban, argued that the positive came from a substance he had taken. But the substance doesn't exist, and its website was fake -- and allegedly created by Cabrera and "at least one associate," the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

Now, Cabrera could face a harsher penalty for his dishonesty, which Major League Baseball reportedly discovered quickly. "All options are in play with this situation,'' a source told Heyman.
