Cano will reportedly be suspended for 80 days for violating baseball's joint drug agreement, according to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic. It is often used by athletes as a masking agent while using performance enhancing drugs.

Cano has already come out with the cookie cutter denial we always see, with the word "never" attached to cheating the game or taking PEDs, while suggesting Furosemide is not actually a performance-enhancing substance and something he got for medical need.

Cano in a statement admitted that he took Furosemide and said it was given to him by a licensed medical doctor in the Dominican Republic to "treat a medial ailment".

An eight-time All-Star, Cano has finished top-ten in American League MVP voting six times. 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. "I am extremely grateful for the support I have received during this process, and I look forward to rejoining my teammates later this season", he continued.

"Robinson made a mistake". He's on the disabled list with a broken hand.

"He was probably one of the tougher cuts we had to make in spring training", Servais said.
