Team is the team the player was on at the time of the suspension, not their current team. I combined players on the DSL Rays and VSL Rays as 'DSL/VSL'. Data is from milb.com and The Biz of Baseball.
Interesting note: Alex Sanchez was the first player in history suspended for a violation of MLB's drug testing policy. Sanchez did not file a grievance contesting the suspension, as many other players did in the early period of the policy. The suspension cost him $32,787 of his $600,000 salary.
