Melky Cabrera Associate Banned From Ballparks

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball has banned Melky Cabrera associate Juan Nunez from all team clubhouses.

Manfred says, “Commissioner (Bud) Selig has directed that all major league clubs are prohibited from granting Juan Carlos Nunez access to their clubhouses or other non-public areas,” according to the memo, obtained by The Associated Press.
