Mariners' All-Star Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation

Mariners' All-Star Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation

The Mariners were already without Robinson Cano because of a fracture in his right hand. Cano tested positive before the season and appealed the suspension, but has now chose to drop the appeal, according to T.J.

"Furosemide is used to treat various medical conditions in the United States and the Dominican Republic". He said he didn't realize it was banned. According to MLB.com, Cano received the 80-game ban after testing positive for Furosemide, more commonly referred to as a "water pill", which helps to flush the body of liquid, thus causing more urine and diluting a drug test sample. Many people believe he was headed to the Hall of Fame. but this could derail that. Cano is an eight-time All-Star but now must deal with the stigma of a suspension. He was placed on the disabled list Monday and was scheduled to see a specialist in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Even if the injury is on the shorter end of the recovery period, Cano's suspension will last until the middle of August.

In his 14-year career (2005-13, Yankees; Seattle since 2014), Cano has racked up 2,417 hits, 1,206 RBI, and 305 home runs. Since 2007, Cano has played at least 150 games each season.
