Robinson Cano faces 80-game suspension

Robinson Cano faces 80-game suspension

I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization.

A source told MLB.com that Cano has been tested at least once since the positive test result.

Because the substance involved was a diuretic, 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. This seems to be the case in regards to Cano. MLB Senior Vice President Patrick Houlihan and union deputy general counsel Matt Nussbaum then worked to reach the agreement to accept the discipline. In his career, Cano has hit 305 home runs in 2,037 games.

Cano's acceptance of the suspension is surely tied to his injury, which may keep him out for a big chunk of that 80-game ban. Our organization fully supports the Program.

Nyssen said the festival "holds the keys" to moving women forward, not just in film but in a variety of industries. Without Thierry Fremaux saying yes to the pledge, without saying yes to the stairs, we wouldn't be here.

The Mariners subsequently released a statement of their own, which read: "Robinson made a mistake".

"He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologised to the fans, the organisation and his teammates". Cano would go on to play in the Bronx for another eight seasons, becoming a five-time All-Star and would be a part of the 2009 World Series champion New York Yankees. He was scheduled to see a specialist in Philadelphia on Tuesday, which could bring a more precise timetable to what is in line to be an extended injury absence. Its relevance to Major League Baseball is that the drug can be used as a masking agent for PEDs.

Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano rounds the bases after hitting a two-run home run against the Miami Marlins to score Jarrod Dyson in the first inning of a baseball game, Monday, April 17, 2017, in Seattle. He will lose his salary for the 80 games, an accumulation of more than $11 million.

This changes the entire complexion of the Mariners' season.
