12 MLB player accept 50 game suspensions

 NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that all players targeted for drug suspensions other than Alex Rodriguez have accepted 50-game penalties from Major League Baseball.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the suspensions had not yet been announced.

The person says All-Stars Nelson Cruz of Texas, Jhonny Peralta of Detroit and Everth Cabrera of San Diego are among the 12 who accepted penalties Monday.

Others include Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and outfielder Fernando Martinez; Philadelphia pitcher Antonio Bastardo; Seattle catcher Jesus Montero; New York Mets infielder Jordany Valdespin and outfielder Cesar Puello; Houston pitcher Sergio Escalona; San Diego pitcher Fautino De Los Santos; and free agent pitcher Jordan Norberto.

MLB informed the Yankees on Sunday that Rodriguez will be suspended for his links to the Biogenesis of America clinic, which was accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs, a person familiar with that decision said. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity because no statement was authorized.

The Yankees weren't told the exact length of the suspension, though they were under the impression it will be through the 2014 season, the person said.

Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun accepted a 65-game suspension two weeks ago, bringing to 14 the number of players - including Rodriguez - facing discipline in the probe, which was sparked when the Miami New Times published documents obtained from former Biogenesis associate Porter Fisher that linked several players to the clinic.

Eleven St. Charles West High School students are suspended for their involvement in a brawl Friday that began on Twitter.  Superintendent Jeff Marion says some male students exchanged words with some male students from the Ferguson-Florissant School District using the social networking site.

 Two St. Charles students helped orchestrate the brawl, and let four teens who were not students in the district into the building just as classes were dismissing for the day.  Six teens were arrested after the fight.  Of the 11 suspended Monday, six were female; all the students were ages 15 to 17.
