Robinson Cano To Be Suspended 80 Games ... for Steroids

Robinson Cano To Be Suspended 80 Games ... for Steroids

Cano suffered a fractured hand when he was hit by a pitch Sunday.

Cano will be eligible to return to the roster in mid-August.

Cano's positive resulted from an offseason test, a person familiar with the process said.

"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called Furosemide, which is not a Performance Enhancing Substance".

The league announced on Tuesday that Cano tested positive for furosemide, a diuretic, which is in violation of MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. In the 13 years since the introduction of baseball's joint drug agreement, no player that has failed a test has been inducted into the Hall of Fame, with Rafael Palmeiro and Manny Ramirez clocking in as the most prominent players to miss out. "Today I made a decision to accept MLB's suspension". I apologize to my family, friends, fans, team-mates and the Mariners organization.


Sure enough, Cano obliged with a personal statement in which he expressed regret at not being "more careful" with a drug he did not know Major League Baseball considered as part of a scheme to hide the use of PEDs, which Cano denied ingesting directly. Cano reportedly dropped that appeal after Major League Baseball was able to determine his intent.

"Any time a team loses its three-hole hitter, it doesn't just have somebody to step in and replace that guy", Mariners manager Scott Servais said when Cano went on the DL but prior to his suspension.

"Robinson made a mistake". It is the first PED suspension in his 14-year career. "Our organization fully supports the program", the Mariners said in a statement. He was scheduled to fulfill with a hand specialist in Philadelphia early Tuesday. "He has defined to us what occurred, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the followers, the group and his teammates". Heyman adds that the Cano suspension is for a diuretic (furosemide), which is seen as a masking agent. However, he will lose almost half his $24 million salary from 2018. With 305 career home runs, 2,417 hits, eight All-Star game appearances, and two Gold Gloves he probably would have been an choice for Cooperstown by the end of his career... who knows after this.

Cano is the second player this season to be suspended for failing a drug test, along with Twins shortstop Jorge Polanco, who was suspended in Spring Training. He's appeared healthier and quicker than the past few seasons when he's played through leg injuries that at times limited his range.
