Robinson Canó Suspended 80 Games by Major League Baseball

Mariners' star Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for violating joint drug agreement

Tuesday, ESPN "Pardon the Interruption" hosts Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon discussed Seattle Mariners star second baseman Robinson Cano's 80-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance that will be served as the former All-Star nurses a fractured hand.

"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called Furosemide, which is not a performance enhancing substance", Cano said in a statement released by the MLB Players Association.

Gordon spent the first seven years of his Major League Baseball career as a middle infielder before shifting to center field for the 2018 campaign following an offseason trade from Miami to Seattle. Cano was trending toward being one of the few current players with a chance to reach 3,000 hits in his career and has been a consummate defensive standout. "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.

The suspension was announced two days after the first significant injury during Cano's tenure in Seattle.

Ex-PM Najib Razak banned from leaving Malaysia
Mahathir and Anwar have a complicated history, originally serving as prime minister and deputy respectively in the 1990s. Earlier this week, Mr Najib's long-ruling Barisan Nasional coalition suffered a shock electoral defeat.

Cano is now out injured after suffering a broken bone in his hand after being hit by a pitch. Cano was examined Tuesday in Philadelphia by Dr Randall Culp and is expected to have surgery on the injury on Wednesday. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.

Cano has played at least 150 games each season since 2007.

Cano is under contract through the 2023 season, when he'll be nearly 41 years old, at $24 million each year, and if Seattle makes the playoffs this year he won't be eligible. But now, he's not going to be playing for a while anyway.
