  • Robinson Cano suspended 80 games by MLB for drug policy violation: report

"Canó's 80-game suspension is effective immediately".

But ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn pointed out on Twitter that player are not automatically suspended for taking diruetics.

Cano tested positive for the diuretic Furosemide, which violates the MLB's drug prevention and treatment program. "He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his teammates", the Mariners said in a team statement.

"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called Furosemide, which is not a Performance Enhancing Substance", Cano said in a statement. "We will support Robinson as he works through this challenge".

"Today I chose to accept MLB's suspension".

Seattle City Council approves controversial head tax on large businesses
For her part, Durkan said the limited tax would "address our homelessness crisis without jeopardizing critical jobs". It accused the city of spending without accountability while ignoring that hundreds of children sleep outside.

In his four-plus seasons with the Mariners, Cano owns a.294 batting average and an.824 OPS, and he averaged 24 homers and 90 RBIs per season from 2014-17. He will lose his salary for the 80 games, an accumulation of more than $11 million. I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization. He remains a virtual shoo-in to reach 3,000 hits - he has 2,417 with five more years on his contract - and those achievements would have surely made him a lock for the Hall of Fame. Cano is an eight-time All-Star but now must deal with the stigma of a suspension.

The timing of the suspension comes on the heels of Cano suffering the first significant injury of his tenure in Seattle.

The Mariners were already without Robinson Cano because of a fracture in his right hand. Due to the suspension, he will be ineligible to play in the postseason if Seattle should make the playoffs.

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.
