MLB players’ union concludes Melky Cabrera’s agents unaware of scheme

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — The baseball players’ union concluded Melky Cabrera’s agents didn’t know about a scheme to create a phony website in a defense of his positive drug test but said they failed to properly manage the employees of the firm who tried to carry out the scheme.

Brothers Sam and Seth Levinson, the heads of ACES Inc., were probed by the Major League Baseball Players Association after MLB’s investigations department discovered the attempt to concoct evidence. Cabrera, the MVP of the All-Star game, was suspended 50 games in August after testing positive for testosterone.

Union head Michael Weiner says: “After a thorough investigation, we concluded none of the ACES principals were involved in or had knowledge of the Cabrera scheme.”
