Seattle Mariners All-Star Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for steroid use

"Cano tested positive before the season, appealed and dropped the appeal", Quinn tweeted.

"This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment" he continued.

Cano, 35, did not see through an arbitration hearing via the JDA.

Seattle Mariners star second baseman Robinson Cano has been suspended for 80 video games for violating baseball's joint drug settlement, Main League Baseball introduced Tuesday. For more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and priviledge of my life.

Which is all to say, Robinson Cano should have absolutely nothing to prove in the Majors and no reason to believe that artificially enhanced performance in 2018 would make him any richer than he already is, and still, Robinson Cano went and got himself suspended for performance-enhancing drug use. "This was probably the most troublesome choice I've ever made in my life, however finally the best choice provided that I don't dispute that I used to be given this substance".

Then an officer presented the young LAD with his own SWAT shirt as he made his way to the door of Sullivan Elementary School. For his first day back to school, Dakota asked if one of his dad's friends could drive him in his dad's police auto .

According to the JDA, Cano had an opportunity to explain the presence of a masking agent. It's sports. We play on.

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. He is likely to undergo surgery and miss up to eight weeks. The suspension will keep him sidelined until mid-August and cost him upwards of $11 million in salary.

Cano quickly accepted the suspension and also provided an explanation for his positive test.

There'll be more at stake, of course. If Seattle, now 23-17, 1.5 games behind the Angels and Astros for the top spot in the AL West, wants to keep contending, they'll need to consider a more competent replacement for Cano. That goal now becomes more tenuous.

Cano made his Major League Baseball debut with the New York Yankees in 2005 and played for them through the 2013 season. The 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young victor voiced his frustration with the practice after the Marlins' Dee Gordon played against Verlander's former team, the Tigers, in the opening series of the 2016 season after the league was made aware of his test results.
