And the only player suspended so far is a fringe player with the Mariners - one they can suspend without huge public outcry. And what was his offense? What was this substance?

Rosin from the rosin bag.

Suspended for ten days for using rosin from the rosin bag, and the Mariners can't replace him on the roster.

More info in the NY Times that the ban on sticky stuff is having an effect.

Excerpt: "More than a month into the era of increased scrutiny on the application of prohibited sticky substances to major league baseballs, spin rates on fastballs have fallen about 4 percent, as strikeouts have decreased and on-base percentage has risen — midseason changes without parallel in decades.

The steep drop began around June 3, when baseball made it known that it would address the issue directly. And it began to level off around June 15, the date M.L.B. announced its enhanced enforcement procedures would begin the following week, including in-game inspections by umpires and the threat of 10-game suspensions for pitchers found violating the rules."

The article in the Times has a number of graphs and supporting data.
