roto The MLBPA is willing to adjust the steroid policy so that first-time offenders will get 20-game rather than 10-day suspensions and will agree to amphetamine tests under a proposal to commissioner Bud Selig.
First-time offenders for amphetamine would receive treatment, with discipline starting with a second offense. For steroids, the possibility that a first-time offender's suspension could rise up to 30 games if there were aggravating factors, or be lowered to as few as 10 games if an arbitrator finds mitigating factors. The penalty for a second positive steroid test increase from 30 days to 75 games, with the possibility an arbitrator could increase it to as many as 100 games or lower it to as few as 50 games. A third positive test could lead to a permanent ban. Sep. 26 - 6:36 pm et

Still light but heading in the right direction at least.
