MLB has suspended Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano for 80 games for violating baseball’s joint drug agreement. According to the New York Post:
MLB said he tested positive for furosemide, a diuretic, which Cano noted isn’t a performance-enhancing drug. But it is seen as a masking agent.
“Furosemide is used to treat various medical conditions in the United States and the Dominican Republic,” Cano said in a statement. “This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment. 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.”
We’ll see what kind of fallout this has in the near future.
