SAN DIEGO — San Diego Padres All-Star shortstop Everth Cabrera was one of 13 players suspended by Major League Baseball Monday for links to performance enhancing drugs.

Cabrera, who hits leadoff for the Padres, was suspended for 50 games. He will miss the rest of the season.

He only recently returned from an injured hamstring, and the Padres went from contending for the National League West lead to last place during his absence. Since he got back on the field, the Friars have climbed to third place.

The native of Nicaragua was hitting .283 and was leading the National League with 37 steals at the time of the suspension.

The list of suspensions also included Padres minor league pitcher Fautino de los Santos, an off-season acquisition from Oakland, who is rehabilitating an injury at the team’s minor league complex in Arizona.

Catcher Yasmani Grandal, who served a 50-game suspension at the beginning of this season for failing a drug test, was not given more punishment. Grandal is also hurt and is expected to be out the rest of this season.

The team released a statement that said, “The Padres fully support Major League Baseball’s policy and its efforts to eliminate performance- enhancing drugs from our game. The club will continue to stand behind the commissioner’s office to ensure the integrity of baseball.”

New York Yankees infielder Alex Rodriguez was suspended through the end of the 2014 season. The biggest names among the others, each receiving 50-game suspensions, were Texas Rangers right-fielder Nelson Cruz and Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta.
