Cano Handed 80 Game Drug Suspension

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

He tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic, which is a banned substance. He is second all-time in homers by a second baseman behind only Jeff Kent (377). Players are not automatically suspended for those kind of drugs, but they are often used to "mask" or help the body flush out other types of PED's, and apparently that was the case with Cano. According to the statement, Cano was prescribed Furosemide, which is a diuretic used to treat various medical conditions. The 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young victor voiced his frustration with the practice after the Marlins' Dee Gordon played against Verlander's former team, the Tigers, in the opening series of the 2016 season after the league was made aware of his test results. He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his team-mates.

The news of Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano's suspension on Tuesday sent a shock wave through the baseball world. Cano reportedly dropped that appeal after Major League Baseball was able to determine his intent. For more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and priviledge of my life.

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".

The 35-year-old veteran is on the 10-day disabled list after suffering a broken bone in his right hand on a hit by pitch.

MLB's drug policy requires an 80-game suspension for a first-time offender. "I am extremely grateful for the support I have received during this process, and I look forward to rejoining my teammates later this season", he continued. Cano will lose his salary for the 80 games and is expected to lose about $11.8 million. But I do care why Robinson Cano took steroids because I think it speaks to our complete and wholesale ignorance of the types of things that can drive people. Also, should Seattle actually make it to the postseason (which would end the longest current playoff drought in baseball) Cano would not be eligible to participate. "We are going to assist Robinson as he works by way of this problem", the Mariners mentioned in a press release. Given that much time and his history of health, Cano could've endured even a fairly ungraceful decline and reached 3,000 hits and 400 home runs and shoo-in Hall of Fame status by his age-40 season when his deal runs up.
