Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for violating MLB's drug policy

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

"Robinson made a mistake", the team's statement said.

Cano in a statement admitted that he took Furosemide and said it was given to him by a licensed medical doctor in the Dominican Republic to "treat a medial ailment".

"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called Furosemide, which is not a performance enhancing substance". "I felt like I had to prove to everyone that I could play when I came back".

A diuretic is seen as a masking agent, which Major League Baseball treats as a positive test.

In the near term, Cano could return from his suspension and keep right on hitting, just as teammate Nelson Cruz and several other players suspended under post-2006 rules have done.

Cano's positive resulted from an offseason test, a person familiar with the process said.

Falling New York Mets lose to Reds after batting out of order
For what it's worth, the Mets have been giving each of Cabrera and Flores at-bats in the second and third spots all year long. Cabrera was on-deck to hit second in the inning after Nimmo. "I've seen it in the minor leagues", Meals said.

The agreement states it should be considered a positive test "if the IPA determines that the player meant to avoid detection of his use of another prohibited substance". The case was scheduled to be heard starting Tuesday in Seattle before arbitrator Mark Irvings, but the union informed Major League Baseball last Friday that Cano wanted to drop the grievance and reach a settlement, the person said. It is the first PED suspension in his 14-year career.

"It's surprising, because I know Robby". Bonds, the game's all-time leader in home runs, has topped out at 56.4 percent of the 75 percent needed for induction in six years on the ballot. The Milwaukee Brewers have found with Ryan Braun that there isn't much of a market for disgraced former stars even if they go back to having success.

The suspension was announced two days after the first significant injury during Cano's tenure in Seattle.

Cano was placed on the disabled list on Monday due to a broken right hand he suffered when he was hit by a pitch in the Mariners' 5-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Add Robinson Cano to a long list of Yankees who have steroid and drug pasts. His 305 home runs are second all time among those to primarily play the position behind only Jeff Kent, and his 1,206 RBIs rank eighth and his 2,417 hits are 12th among second basemen. However, he will lose salary - $11.85 million of his $24 million deal for 2018, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell - and is ineligible for the postseason and the All-Star Game. He's appeared healthier and quicker than the past few seasons when he's played through leg injuries that at times limited his range.

If you're going to draw a line, though, there's some logical consistency to treating players like Cano, A-Rod, and Ramirez differently than you would Bonds or Clemens.
