Robinson Cano suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball

Mariners All Star Robinson Cano will reportedly be suspended 80 games

That substance was a diuretic called Furosemide (also known as Lasix), and using it is a violation of MLB's drug prevention and treatment program. During the appeal, Major League Baseball apparently was able to determine his intent, resulting in Cano dropping his appeal, the source said.

In a statement released by the players' union, Cano said a doctor in his native Dominican Republic prescribed the medication to treat an unspecified medical ailment. He said he didn't realize it was banned.

Cano landed on the disabled list Monday, a day after a bone in his right hand was broken when hit by a pitch in Detroit.

Rodriguez and Cano would seem to have an even harder path to Cooperstown than Bonds and Clemens, because - like Rafael Palmeiro and Manny Ramirez - they were caught during the testing era and served a suspension for their decisions. If a case can be made for allowing teams to void the contract of a player who get popped for performance-enhancing drugs, the Mariners have a strong one now with Cano. He will be out for six to eight weeks, which will count towards his suspension.

"I am extremely grateful for the support I have received during this process, and I look forward to re-joining my team-mates later this season". "He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his teammates".

"We love Robinson Cano".

"It's surprising, because I know Robbie". No, no, no, no. Ryan Braun was a drug cheat. In parts of five seasons with the Mariners, Canó is slashing.294/.353/.471 with 147 doubles and 101 home runs. Since 2007, Cano has played at least 150 games each season. When the Mariners acquired him in a trade with the Marlins, they moved him to the outfield.

Dee Gordon says that he is ready to play second base for the Seattle Mariners while Robinson Cano is out.
