Seattle Mariners Robinson Cano Suspended

Robinson Cano

Per baseball's performance-enhancing drug policy, a first-time offender receives an 80-game suspension. He will also lose his salary during the suspension, expected to be around $11 million.

Cano tested positive for the diuretic furosemide, which violates the MLB's drug prevention and treatment program. Its relevance to Major League Baseball is that the drug can be used as a masking agent for PEDs.

The 35-year-old Cano, a second baseman, tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

"This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment", Cano said in his statement. On Tuesday, Cano got more bad news, this time from Major League Baseball itself.

"Today I chose to accept MLB's suspension". I apologize to my family, friends, fans, team-mates and the Mariners organization.

As for the Mariners, they had already committed to giving Gordon Beckham a look at the keystone.

Robinson Cano had recently been injured after getting hit by a pitch during Sunday's game again the Detroit Tigers. He can serve the suspension concurrently with his DL stint.
