Robinson Cano suspended 80 games

Robinson Cano suspended 80 games

Robinson Cano will not fight the 80-game suspension he received from Major League Baseball on Tuesday after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Gomez's report was then confirmed by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic and Bob Nightengale of USA Today.

Per MLB.com's Mark Feinsand, the eight-time All-Star's fractured right hand will require surgery. According to Rosenthal, the time Cano spends on the disabled list will count towards his suspension. However, he will lose almost half his $24 million salary from 2018.

Cano said in a statement released via the Major League Players Association he had been given the drug during a visit to a doctor in the Dominican Republic for an undisclosed ailment. It's extremely naïve of Cano to not check what he was being given was not on the banned substance list. Cano has played a key role in that early-season success. He was batting.287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this year.

Losing a player of Cano's caliber will be damaging to the Mariners, especially given how heavy the competition in the American League West is this year. The second baseman has a.360 career average against McCullers, which likely prompted this now-deleted tweet. He left before the 2014 season for the Mariners.

The second part of this is where Cano's management team were during this doctor's visit. Seattle now stands 1.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot, 2.5 games ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays. Cano's DL stint and suspension will now overlap, and he won't be eligible to return until August. Cano was trending toward becoming one of the few current players with a chance to reach 3,000 hits in his career and has been a consummate defensive standout. "That's something they're apparently still looking into". So if you're going to make arguments or consider Hall votes based on legacies, it might make more sense to come down harder on those players actually busted for breaking the rules than those who happened to hit long home runs or throw blazing fastballs 15 or 20 years ago.

But ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn pointed out on Twitter that players are not automatically suspended for taking diruetics.
