  • Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for PEDs

Seattle Mariners star second baseman, Robinson Cano has been suspended 80 games for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy on Tuesday.

Cano tested positive for the diuretic Furosemide, which is often used to help mask banned substances in urine tests, according to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand. The suspension is now official and effective immediately, even though Cano was just placed on the disabled list Monday.

The 80-game suspension is mandatory for a first offense for PED usage.

Gomez cited "off the record sources and non-official reports" in breaking the news, which various other media outlets, including Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, have since confirmed via their own sources.

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

The eight-time All-Star selection was batting.287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this season, his fifth with Seattle.

Whether Cano reaches that mark or not, his Hall of Fame case will include questions about the legitimacy of his accomplishments.

"Robinson made a mistake", the Mariners said in a statement.

Unless they make a trade, the Mariners will utilize Andrew Romine and Gordon Beckham at second base until then.
