Ex-Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera will not be playing for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, according to ESPN Deportes.

Cabrera led all of baseball in batting average in 2012 before being suspended 50-games for using PEDs. Subsequently, he was not re-signed by the Giants and inked a two-year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Last week, Cabrera was named in the Miami New Times report that revealed prominent sports stars bought PEDs from a Miami clinic.
