  • Mariners' Robinson Cano suspended 80 games by MLB

MLB.com's Corey Brock says Gordon was already taking ground balls on Tuesday.

The eight-times All-Star, who won a World Series in 2009 while playing for the New York Yankees, tested positive for the diuretic Furosemide, which violates the MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Cano's suspension means Major League Baseball was able to prove he was using it to mask a drug, which led to the 35-year-old dropping the appeal and accepting his suspension.

A source familiar with the case told ESPN's T.J. Quinn that Cano tested positive before the season and appealed. Cano reportedly dropped that appeal after Major League Baseball was able to determine his intent. This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment.

Dean Garfield, CEO of the Information Technology Industry Council, says it's been disappointing not to have more of a national movement around AI.

"While I did not realize at the time that I was given a medication that was banned, I obviously now wish that I had been more careful", Cano said.

Cano was placed on the disabled list on Monday due to a broken right hand he suffered when he was hit by a pitch in the Mariners' 5-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. There have been 36 players suspended this year under the minor league drug program and six in addition to Cano under the big league program: Houston pitcher Dean Deetz, Washington catcher Raudy Read, Pittsburgh pitcher Nik Turley, Kansas City outfielder Jorge Bonifacio, Toronto pitcher Thomas Pannone and Minnesota shortstop Jorge Polanco. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension. This was the most hard decision I have ever made in my life, but ultimately the right decision given that I do not dispute that I was given this substance. And the Mariners could lean more heavily on Cruz, Kyle Seager, Mitch Haniger, and other key hitters as they try to snap the longest playoff drought in baseball. "Robinson made a mistake. I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization".

"We love Robinson Cano". The 80-game suspension is mandatory for a first offence for performance-enhancing drug (PED) usage.

"It's surprising, because I know Robbie. But after the Ryan Braun thing, nothing surprises me", Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia said. In his career, Cano has hit 305 home runs in 2,037 games.

In 39 games this year, the 35-year-old Cano had a slash line of.287/.385/.441, with four home runs and 23 RBIs.

Cano's resume doesn't approach that of legends like Bonds and A-Rod, but it's still Hall-worthy, even if he never plays another game.
