∑ At the time of the suspension, Pichardo was a member of the Giants’ 40-man roster. At the time, he was with Triple-A Fresno. His suspension will be effective at the start of the 2009 regular season.

ξ Ramirez becomes the highest profile player to be suspended during active play. League suspends Ramirez for hGC (human chorionic gonadotropin), a female fertility drug. He claimed that his positive test is a result of medication received from a doctor for a personal medical issue. Ramirez is found to have elevated testosterone levels when tested during Spring Training. The elevated levels of testosterone leads to an investigation by the league which then discovers that Ramirez has been using hGC, a substance known to be used by serial steroid users to kick-start the body's natural testosterone products after a steroid cycle. The suspension is, therefore, a "non-analytical positive"; a suspension based upon evidence, not a failed drug test. While hGC is a banned substance due to its coupled use with anibolic steroids, players can request a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for hGC, something Ramirez did not do.
