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

Robinson Cano To Be Suspended 80 Games ... for Steroids

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.

Cano tested positive for the diuretic furosemide, which violates the MLB's drug prevention and treatment program. In a statement released through the players' association, Cano said the substance was given to him by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment.

"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called Furosemide, which is not a performance enhancing substance". "I feel comfortable now because I got the money, but money's not everything". The next step was for Thomas Martin, the independent program administrator hired by the Major League Baseball and the players' association, to determine whether the use of Furosemide was an attempt to "to substitute, dilute, mask or adulterate a specimen or in any other manner alter a test", according to the joint drug program.

In the near term, Cano could return from his suspension and keep right on hitting, just as teammate Nelson Cruz and several other players suspended under post-2006 rules have done. MLB Senior Vice President Patrick Houlihan and union deputy general counsel Matt Nussbaum then worked to reach the agreement to accept the discipline.

Deportivo Z 101 in the Dominican Republic, Cano's home country, first reported Cano's suspension for steroid use, with an announcement expected on Tuesday that has now come.

Major League Baseball said Cano's time on the disabled list will count toward his 80-game suspension.

"It's surprising, because I know Robby".

Cano was placed on the disabled list on Monday due to a broken right hand he suffered when he was hit by a pitch in the Mariners' 5-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. The Milwaukee Brewers have found with Ryan Braun that there isn't much of a market for disgraced former stars even if they go back to having success.

Cano, who has hit at least 20 home runs in eight of the past nine seasons, was hitting.287 with four home runs before breaking his hand. However, he will lose almost half his $24 million salary from 2018. But now, he's not going to be playing for a while anyway.

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.
