  • Mariners' star Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for violating joint drug agreement

The league mentioned that the 35-year-old Cano had examined constructive for Furosemide, a diuretic, In a press release launched by way of the Main League Baseball Gamers Affiliation, Cano mentioned the substance had been "given to me by a licensed physician within the Dominican Republic to deal with a medical ailment".

A two-time Gold Glove victor, Cano began his Major League Baseball career with the Yankees in 2005 and signed as a free agent with Seattle in 2013.

"For more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life", Cano said. He was scheduled to meet with a hand specialist in Philadelphia early Tuesday. (Cano's time on the DL counts toward his suspension.) The Mariners don't have a top middle-infield prospect close to the majors to turn to, but center fielder Dee Gordon said he is open to transitioning back to second, where he played the majority of his career entering this season.

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.

Robinson Cano was suspended Tuesday for 80 video games after violating MLB's joint-drug settlement coverage.

"Robinson made a mistake", the Mariners wrote in a statement following news of the suspension. "I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization".

Manchester United Confirm Assistant Manager Rui Faria Is To Leave The Club
United, who finished second behind champions Manchester City, will be going up against Mourinho's former club at Wembley. He said: "17 years.in Leiria, Porto , London, Milan, Madrid, London again and Manchester".

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. This seems to be the case in regards to Cano.

The former Yankees All-Star said in a statement, "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 will not only be ineligible for the 2018 All-Star Game and postseason, but he'll also lose the money that he was set to make in that stretch.

"We love Robinson Cano".

Cano is under contract through the 2023 season, when he'll be nearly 41 years old, at $24 million each year, and if Seattle makes the playoffs this year he won't be eligible.

The suspension will cost Cano just less than $12 million in salary.

"In this particular instance we're going to be without one of our best players and got to find a way to bridge the gap", Dipoto said.
