Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano suspended 80 games for positive drug test

Robinson Cano was already on the 10-day disabled list with a broken right hand. But now, he faces an 80-game suspension for a first-time violation of MLB's drug policy. The Mariners were already without Robinson Cano because of a fracture in his right hand. They will be without him even longer because of a failed drug test for a performing enhancing substance. Baseball sources confirmed an early morning tweet from veteran reporter Hector Gomez that Cano had violated the Major League Baseball drug policy and will be suspended 80 games and be ineligible to participate in the postseason. That means he will be eligible to return in the 121st game of this season, which is August 14 in Oakland. Cano loses his salary from those 80 games, which is just under $12 million
