Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation

Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation

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.

Cano released a statement through the MLBPA following the announcement of his suspension, which is effective immediately, accepting that he had taken the substance but that he had not done so to gain an unfair advantage. 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.

"Today I made a decision to accept MLB's suspension". "I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization".

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

"We love Robinson Cano".

It was the first major strike in a career that has Hall of Fame potential. "But after the Ryan Braun thing, nothing surprises me", Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia said.

This season, Cano was hitting.287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs in 39 games. In parts of five seasons with the Mariners, CanĂ³ is slashing.294/.353/.471 with 147 doubles and 101 home runs.

Cano has played at least 150 games each season since 2007.

Dee Gordon says that he is ready to play second base for the Seattle Mariners while Robinson Cano is out. They probably have more organizational depth in the outfield than middle infield without Cano, too, so a move to where Gordon is more comfortable makes sense.
