Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for violating Major League Baseball drug policy

The diuretic furosemide, a masking agent.

So Cano will now most likely sit with his old Yankees teammate and mentor, Alex Rodriguez, on the Hall of Fame sidelines someday, barring a shift in attitude of voters, who have so far denied entry to Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and others tied to performance-enhancing drugs. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Gordon, a former second baseman, will likely see some time at that position to fill in for the suspended Cano. Clearing center field would give the Mariners the ability to play Guillermo Heredia and his.397 on-base percentage on a regular basis.

Cano released a statement through the MLBPA following the announcement of his suspension, which is effective immediately, accepting that he had taken the substance but that he had not done so to gain an unfair advantage. 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.

Security researchers discover critical flaw in PGP encryption that reveals plaintext
The second attack involves attackers being able to use their knowledge of parts of an email to crack its encryption. The flaw, named EFAIL, reportedly affects both sent and received messages, including past correspondence.


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. He will be out for six to eight weeks, which will count towards his suspension. No, no, no, no. Ryan Braun was a drug cheat. Cano was examined Tuesday in Philadelphia by Dr Randall Culp and is expected to have surgery on the injury on Wednesday.

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. However, he will lose almost half his $24 million salary from 2018. Since 2007, Cano has played at least 150 games each season. But now, he's not going to be playing for a while anyway.
