"He was probably one of the tougher cuts we had to make in spring training", Servais said.
"Robinson made a mistake".
He tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic, which is a banned substance. "He has explained to us what happened, accepted the punishment and has apologized to the fans, the organization and his teammates", the Mariners said in a released statement. The Mariners have missed the playoffs 16 years in a row, but they began Tuesday with a 23-17 record, just a game and a half out of an American League wild-card spot.
Cano also said he was accepting MLB's suspension, calling it "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". I apologize to my family, friends, fans, teammates and the Mariners organization. He's now on the disabled list with a broken hand.
Cano's acceptance of the suspension is surely tied to his injury, which may keep him out for a big chunk of that 80-game ban. The 31-year-old Beckham hit.300 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 25 games at Tacoma. Despite being on the DL, his suspension will start immediately and he will not be eligible for postseason play or the All-Star Game this season.
