MLB and steroids

NEW DEAL: Players who test positive for steroids for the first time will be subject to a 10-day suspension. Under old agreement, they were sent for counseling. In Olympic sports, a first positive test results in a two-year ban.

AROUND THE WORLD: There will be random testing during the offseason for the first time, including outside the United States.

NOT INCLUDED: No testing for amphetamines. No blood tests for human growth hormone.
