According to T.J. Quinn of ESPN, the likely course of events that took place was Major League Baseball was "able to prove he was using it to mask a drug".

Seattle Mariners star Robinson Cano has been banned for 80 games after failing a drugs test, Major League Baseball said Tuesday.

Cano, 35, was placed on the disabled list yesterday with a broken hand after being hit by a pitch on Sunday.

The Mariners are expected to make an announcement later in the day.

Cano, who had yet to miss a Mariners game this season after his 23-home run campaign in 2017, said in his statement that he does not consider Furosemide a "performance-enhancing drug" and that he received it from a "licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment". He headed to Seattle in free agency, signing a 10-year deal worth $240 million.

The 80-game suspension is without pay, meaning Cano will miss out on almost half of the $24 million that he was owed for the 2018 season.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the 80-game suspension will cost Cano $11,851,852 in salary.

Cano also released a statement, saying he was unaware that he took a banned substance. 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. As with all players who fail a PED test, Cano is no longer eligible for this year's postseason.

"Robinson made a mistake". A consistently strong hitter, he has eight All-Star selections, a.304 lifetime average and 305 career home runs. "We will support Robinson as he works through this challenge", the club said. He remains a virtual shoo-in to reach 3,000 hits - he has 2,417 with five more years on his contract - and those achievements would have surely made him a lock for the Hall of Fame.
