Mariners All-Star Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation

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

Mariners' All-Star Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation, will lose more than $11 million

The diuretic furosemide, a masking agent.

Cano's positive resulted from an offseason test, a person familiar with the process said.

Moshiri seems to have accepted the direction of his current manager, which is why he gave the player permission to speak to clubs. The Englishman is the club's top scorer this season, but his last goal came in December.

The agreement states it should be considered a positive test "if the IPA determines that the player meant to avoid detection of his use of another prohibited substance". The case was scheduled to be heard starting Tuesday in Seattle before arbitrator Mark Irvings, but the union informed Major League Baseball last Friday that Cano wanted to drop the grievance and reach a settlement, the person said.

He's been to eight All-Star games, six of them while in pinstripes. "But after the Ryan Braun thing, nothing surprises me", said Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia, who was teammates with Braun in Milwaukee before the Brewers slugger tested positive for PEDs.

Jeffress responded in a tweet of his own by defending his view that 'salvation is through faith in Christ alone'. Pastor Jeffress is a Southern Baptist, and the quotes attributed to him by Romney are accurate.

Cano was recently placed on the 10-day disabled list after suffering a broken pinky bone in his right hand after being hit by a pitch last Sunday, but he will be able to begin serving his 80-day suspension while he rehabilitates from that injury. That injury was expected to keep him out for 6-8 weeks if surgery was required.

Through his first 39 games this season, Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is having a typical solid campaign with a.287/.385/.441 slash-line, 23 RBI and 24 runs scored. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension. Also, should Seattle actually make it to the postseason (which would end the longest current playoff drought in baseball) Cano would not be eligible to participate. But now, he's not going to be playing for a while anyway.
