The Chris Colabello and Dee Gordon suspensions have ramped up debate on whether the current MLB penalty structure is enough of a deterrent to potential PED users. Recent developments will also spur discussion on whether teams should be stuck with the tab on multi-million dollar deals for players who break the rules. It's a volatile and contentious topic that can only add to the complexity of the ongoing MLB labor talks.

The Blue Jays, who lead the majors with seven bullpen losses, recalled right-hander Ryan Tepera from Triple-A Buffalo and optioned ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte to the Bisons.
