Tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic.

He's already out with a hand injury, 4 to 6 weeks.

If the suspension starts after he is medically cleared (and in theory it should), that should cost him pretty much the whole season

Seattle is 1 1/2 out of a Wild Card spot so this is a killer for a team that was right in the middle of a pack of above average teams.

I think MLB said the suspension would begin immediately.

They did. That’s a break for Seattle because half of the suspension is covered by the injury, but Cano still won’t play again until just shy of September. For Cano, he loses $11 million total and his paid rehab becomes unpaid. 

Cano had originally appealed but something came up during the investigation that caused him to drop it. A diuretic isn’t itself illegal but sources say MLB definitively proved he was using it to cover up steroid use, and Cano’s advisors told him to just drop the appeal before more stuff came out publicly.

I wonder how much this hurts his potential HOF chances. The guy had a reasonable shot at 3000 hits, career .304 hitter over 300 hrs over 1200 rbi's and 1100 runs for a 2b puts him up there.

Ineligible for the post season too apparently.

Is this all for a first offense or was there something else I’m forgetting?

Yes, first offense. It’s 80 for anything performance enhancing. And what’s funny to me is Hal Steinbrenner (or maybe Hank) wanted to get rid of Cano in trade for Matt Kemp years ago because he suspected he was using. Or even more telling, he claimed he knew it. And it’s why the Yankees made him a contract offer of about $16-$18m per year for 5 years and never budged. I really think he tried to be clean his first year in Seattle but he was so bad that he went back on the juice to compete. This proves to me that if enough time goes by they’ll catch you. Even the shit that only stays in your system 6-8 hours can be detected if you get tested too close to the time you took it

Funny that every ball player knows the penalty for an illegal substance and yet they still continue to use it.

So how does a diuretic count as a PED?

It doesn’t. It’s a known masking agent for PEDs.

Mark Teixeira came out today and said that A-Rod and Melky (Cano's best friends in baseball) got caught with Biogenesis and Cano's personal assistant was caught on the Biogenesis list meaning that in his opinion he was buying for Cano. I believe it to be true because like I said in an earlier post, they've been whispering this about Cano for years and the Yankees really just wanted out from under him due to it.
