Mariners' star Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for violating joint drug agreement

Robinson Cano latest to play the 'I didn't know' card after testing positive for banned substance Robinson Cano's Suspension Wounds the Mariners, and His Hall of Fame Chances

80 games is a lot of time to miss.

Cano maintained that he used the drug to treat an unspecified medical condition, though baseball rules state that the league will treat a diuretic as a positive test if its independent program administrator "determines that the player meant to avoid detection of his use of another prohibited substance". The diuretic furosemide, a masking agent.

Cano in a statement admitted that he took Furosemide and said it was given to him by a licensed medical doctor in the Dominican Republic to "treat a medial ailment".

His absence will be significantly longer.

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. "While I did not realize at the time that I was given a medication that was banned, I obviously now wish that I had been more careful". ". For more than 15 years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life".

Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano (22) is checked by medical staff and manager Scott Servais (29) after being hit by a pitch in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

"Today I made a decision to accept MLB's suspension".

Cano said he chose to accept the suspension because he does not deny consuming Furosemide, but called accepting the suspension "the most hard decision I have ever made in my life". He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his team-mates. During the appeal, Major League Baseball apparently was able to determine his intent, resulting in Cano dropping his appeal, the source said. "We will support Robinson as he works through this challenge". "So, no, if you're out for 40 games because you've got a bad hand, no".

Cano is the biggest baseball star busted since Melky Cabrera was suspended in 2012 while leading the National League in hitting. Cano's DL stint and suspension will now overlap, and he won't be eligible to return until August. Gordon was a Gold Glove victor at the position in Miami, but made the switch to center field after being traded to Seattle. "Personally, I didn't have the statistical value Robinson Cano had at that point in my career when I went through it", Gordon said. "I feel comfortable now because I got the money, but money's not everything". Sold under the brand name. It is on the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of banned substances.

A source familiar with the case told ESPN's T.J. Quinn that Cano tested positive before the season and appealed. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement specifies such details remain confidential.

After Martin made that determination, the union filed a grievance last month.

The suspension deals a cruel blow to a Mariners team that's exceeded expectations so far this year. Bonds, the game's all-time leader in home runs, has topped out at 56.4 percent of the 75 percent needed for induction in six years on the ballot.

"It's surprising, because I know Robby". No, no, no, no. Ryan Braun was a drug cheat. Cano was examined Tuesday in Philadelphia by Dr Randall Culp and is expected to have surgery on the injury on Wednesday.

Cano has played at least 150 games each season since 2007.

Add Robinson Cano to a long list of Yankees who have steroid and drug pasts. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.
