Mariners All-Star Cano suspended 80 games for drug violation

According to ESPN, MLB's drug policy has a rule that states a player won't be automatically suspended for a diuretic unless the league is able to prove he used it as a masking agent.

The 35-year-old, who seemed a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame, spent nine seasons with the Yankees, helping them to a World Series in 2009.

Dee Gordon says that he is ready to play second base for the Seattle Mariners while Robinson Cano is out.

They eventually shifted to the White House in June 2017 and the FLOTUS now is being seen working on improving her public profile. But once the East Wing announced her hospital stay, the President boarded Marine One two hours later to visit his wife.

Gordon played second base from 2014-2017. Cano released a statement that said, in part, he would accept the suspension which starts now. 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.

He's been to eight All-Star games, six of them while in pinstripes.

Cano suffered a fractured fifth metacarpal in his right hand when he was struck by a pitch from Detroit's Blaine Hardy on Sunday. That injury was expected to keep him out for 6-8 weeks if surgery was required.

Except, by all accounts Jenner and boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed their first daughter together ― albeit in secret ― in February. Now, Tim Chung has denied being Stormi's father through a social media post.

Cano can serve his suspension while on the disabled list but is now ineligible for the postseason should the Mariners get there and end the longest playoff drought in the four major professional sports. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.

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. But now, he's not going to be playing for a while anyway.
