Mariners' Cano banned 80 games for positive test

Cano is suspended 80 games and is ineligible for the postseason if the Mariners are to make it for the first time since 2001 - the longest postseason drought in the four major North American pro sports. He also said he will accept the suspension, rather than exercise his right to an appeal if he hadn't already done so. Cano reportedly tested positive for furosemide, a diuretic that can be used as a masking agent for PED use and thus prohibited by Major League Baseball.

"For more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life", Cano said.

Cano, 35, tested positive for furosemide, a diuretic that is often used to help mask banned substances in urine tests.

But ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn seems to disagree with Cano's assessment of the substance he tested positive for.

Cano claims the substance was given to him by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment without his knowledge, but the suspension mars his reputation as one of the game's best second basemen regardless. "While I did not realize at the time that I was given a medication that was banned, I obviously now wish that I had been more careful".

Cano was recently placed on the 10-day disabled list after suffering a broken pinky bone in his right hand after being hit by a pitch last Sunday, but he will be able to begin serving his 80-day suspension while he rehabilitates from that injury.

The suspension begins immediately, though Cano, 35, an eight-time all-star, is now on the disabled list with a broken hand after getting hit by a pitch Sunday. Alex Rodriguez, when he played, was a drug cheat.

If there are no games postponed, the Mariners have 11 off days during the time of the ban, so Cano would lose 91-186ths of his $24 million salary, which comes to $11,741,936. This was the most hard decision I have ever made in my life, but ultimately the right decision given that I do not dispute that I was given this substance. "I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization".

"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".

The Mariners issued a statement saying they were disappointed. 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.

"We love Robinson Cano".
