Mariners' Robinson Cano Suspended 80 games

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

The Yankees signed Cano out of his native Dominican Republic in 2001. The 35-year old veteran says he received it for medical reasons but did not realize it was on a list of banned substances. Sold under the brand name. Furosemide is used to treat various medical conditions in the United States and Dominican Republic.

Diuretics can be used as a masking agent to hide the presence of performance-enhancing drugs or to assist rapid weight loss. T.J. Quinn of ESPN explains Cano tested positive before the season, appealed and dropped the appeal. It's merely a coincidence that he chose to do that right before getting hurt. He will also lose his salary during the suspension, expected to be around $11 million.

"Robinson made a mistake", the Mariners mentioned in a press release. "We will support Robinson as he works through this challenge", the club said.

If there's a silver lining it's that Cano's suspension will coincide with his stint on the DL. Gordon was ultimately handed an 80-game suspension on April 29. The suspension, on the other hand, will cause him to miss almost half the season.

Should Wolves look at Joe Hart with World Cup snub looming?
However, Hart started only half of West Ham's Premier League games this season and conceded 39 goals in his 19 league appearances. Hart has no future at the Etihad Stadium and will meet City's hierarchy to ascertain his next move.

Verlander, who entered the big leagues the same year as Cano (2005) and has faced him regularly in the American League since, has taken particular offense in the past to players being allowed to stay on the field while MLB determines the consequences for their positive tests.

Cano quickly accepted the suspension and also provided an explanation for his positive test. He was off to a solid start in 2018, hitting.287 with four bombs and 23 RBI and a.825 OPS.

Keep that in mind when people revile his decision as selfish and immoral, because his decision - more than it is those things - is one that really just makes no practical sense. The Mariners will likely turn to Andrew Romine to fill in a second base.

Cano ranks fourth among all active players in Wins Above Replacement, behind only shoo-in Hall of Famers Albert Pujols, Adrian Beltre and Miguel Cabrera. He is second all-time in homers by a second baseman behind only Jeff Kent (377). During the appeal, Major League Baseball apparently was able to determine his intent, resulting in Cano dropping his appeal, the source said.
