Mariners' Robinson Cano Suspended 80 games

Robinson Cano suspended for PEDs in baseball stunner

Cano was hit by a pitch in Sunday's game by Detroit left-hander Blaine Hardy.

Update: Cano says in a statement he tested positive for Furosemide, a substance he claims is not a PED. In the 13 years since the introduction of baseball's joint drug agreement, no player that has failed a test has been inducted into the Hall of Fame, with Rafael Palmeiro and Manny Ramirez clocking in as the most prominent players to miss out. I'd by no means do something to cheat the foundations of the sport that I like, and after present process dozens of drug assessments over greater than a decade, I've by no means examined constructive for a Efficiency Enhancing Substance for the straightforward motive that I've by no means taken one. He said he did not realize it was banned. Sold under the brand name.

Usually prescribed to treat high blood pressure, Furosemide is a diuretic. Testing positive for a diuretic doesn't result in an immediate suspension. Furosemide is considered by Major League Baseball to be a masking agent.

As expected, Cano will be forced to go under the knife to fix the broken bone at the base of his right pinkie finger, an injury he suffered just days before being handed an 80-game suspension for failing a drug test. It's merely a coincidence that he chose to do that right before getting hurt. The 80-game suspension is mandatory for a first offence for performance-enhancing drug (PED) usage. "Personally, I didn't have the statistical value Robinson Cano had at that point in my career when I went through it", Gordon said.

"He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologised to the fans, the organisation and his teammates. We are going to assist Robinson as he works by way of this problem", the Mariners mentioned in a press release.

"Today I chose to accept MLB's suspension", Cano said. The suspension, which will be without pay, was announced by the commissioner's office Tuesday. The suspension, on the other hand, will cause him to miss almost half the season.

Even if the injury is on the shorter end of the recovery period, Cano's suspension will last until the middle of August. He was off to a solid start in 2018, hitting.287 with four bombs and 23 RBI and a.825 OPS. Since making his Major League Baseball debut on May 3, 2005, he has appeared in 2,037 games, most of any player during that span. He lost out to Andrew Romine during spring training for a utility infielder job.
