Mariners' Robinson Cano to be suspended 80 games

MLB suspends Seattle's Robinson Canó 80 games for drug violation

Cano's failure was triggered by the presence of furosemide. The suspension is treated as a PED though.

Unclear exactly when Cano failed his test - or what he was specifically using - but FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal says he will get hit with an 80-game ban for "violating baseball's joint drug agreement".

Furosemide is also used to treat high blood pressure. He said he didn't realize it was banned. "Cano tested positive before the season, appealed (the decision), and dropped the appeal". He is batting.287 with 23 RBIs and 10 home runs in 39 games played this season for the Mariners, who are now in third place in the American League West, one and a half games behind the division-leading Los Angeles Angels.

Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano rounds third base after hitting a three-run home run during the fifth inning of the second game of a baseball doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers, Saturday, May 12, 2018, in Detroit. Due to the suspension, he will be ineligible to play in the postseason if Seattle should make the playoffs.
