Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for PED use

Share

Cano, a staple at second base, was set to miss an extended period anyway after he broke a bone in his hand Sunday, when he got struck by a pitch.

Cano's suspension was a shock to his team.

He's been to eight All-Star games, six of them while in pinstripes. He also said he will accept the suspension, rather than exercise his right to an appeal if he hadn't already done so. "I look forward to rejoining my teammates later this season". He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his team-mates. "We will support Robinson as he works through this challenge".

It's different at Manchester United - everyone is standing still, everyone just passes the ball - there is no movement. The pair clashed during Thursday's 0-0 draw between the Hammers and Manchester United at Wembley.

It's the first major strike in a career that has Hall of Fame potential. "But after the Ryan Braun thing, nothing surprises me", Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia said. In parts of five seasons with the Mariners, Canó is slashing.294/.353/.471 with 147 doubles and 101 home runs.

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, now a Mariners second baseman, said in a statement he never used a PED and that the drug was found in medication he received as treatment. They probably have more organizational depth in the outfield than middle infield without Cano, too, so a move to where Gordon is more comfortable makes sense.

Current designated hitter Nelson Cruz served a 50-game suspension while with the Rangers in 2013 for violations of the drug agreement, in relation to the sport's investigation of the Biogenesis of America clinic.
