Robinson Cano Gets 80-Game Suspension After Positive Test for Banned Substance

  • Mariners' Robinson Cano suspended 80 games by MLB

Alex Rodriguez, when he played, was a drug cheat.

If no games are postponed, Cano would be eligible to return August 14 at Oakland. Remember, Gordon moved to center field after being acquired from the Marlins, but he has 502 career starts at second base, including 146 last season. Gordon was a Gold Glove victor at the position in Miami, but made the switch to center field after being traded to Seattle. They gave a great player 80 games here. I have fans out there, I have my son, I have to be a good example.

Furosemide, sold under the name Lasix, can be purchased without a prescription and is used to treat high blood pressure and fluid buildup.

The agreement states it should be considered a positive test "if the IPA determines that the player meant to avoid detection of his use of another prohibited substance".


So Cano will now most likely sit with his old Yankees teammate and mentor, Alex Rodriguez, on the Hall of Fame sidelines someday, barring a shift in attitude of voters, who have so far denied entry to Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and others tied to performance-enhancing drugs. However, he will lose salary - $11.85 million of his $24 million deal for 2018, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell - and is ineligible for the postseason and the All-Star Game.

"It's surprising, because I know Robby".

The suspension was announced two days after the first significant injury during Cano's tenure in Seattle.

Cano, a staple at second base, was set to miss an extended period anyway after he broke a bone in his hand Sunday, when he got struck by a pitch. That injury was expected to keep him out for 6-8 weeks if surgery was required. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.
