Another Bay Area Major League Baseball player has reportedly failed a drug test.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting A's pitcher Bartolo Colon failed an MLB drug test and "is subject to a 50-game suspension."

Colon, whose career improved after a controversial stem-cell treatment, is 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA for the A's in 2012. He finished 8-10 with a 4.00 ERA with the Yankees in 2011.

Colon's suspension comes after MLB gave San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera a 50-game suspension.
