Hector Gomez, later confirmed by Ken Rosenthal, reports Cano will be suspending for steroid use. Cano is also no longer eligible to play in the 2018 postseason, even if the Mariners are in. According to the statement, Cano was prescribed Furosemide, which is a diuretic used to treat various medical conditions.

Diuretics are banned by most major sports organizations and can be abused by athletes to mask the presence of other banned substances, or to excrete water for weight loss. In 2016, he hit 39 home runs before his power took a decline last season with just 26 home runs.

Losing a player of Cano's caliber will be damaging to the Mariners, especially given how heavy the competition in the American League West is this year. Based exclusively on his credentials (including those eight All-Star Game appearances, five Silver Sluggers, two Gold Gloves, six top ten MVP finishes, and a World Championship in 2009), a Hall of Fame selection would be a lay-up with just another year and a half of average production.

"Robinson made a mistake", the Mariners wrote in a statement following news of the suspension. Rodriguez earned a full-season ban for 2014 but has since rejoined the public's good graces as a TV personality and baseball analyst. While the division lead may be a stretch for a Cano-less Mariners team, the Wild Card is certainly within reach.

Cano made his Major League Baseball debut with the New York Yankees in 2005 and played for them through the 2013 season. Many people believe he was headed to the Hall of Fame. but this could derail that. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.

Another superstar possibly cheating in baseball has been caught.

Wynn suffers from a disease that affects his peripheral vision, which may have played a role in the incident with " Le Rêve ". Two outside conservators have now been brought in to make recommendations for the successful restoration of the " Le Marin ".

This is where the problem will arise for Cano.

As per Jon Heyman of FRS Baseball, the suspension is due to PED use. T.J. Quinn of ESPN explains Cano tested positive before the season, appealed and dropped the appeal.

In 2013, Cano would sign a 10-year deal with the Mariners worth $240 million.

The timing of the suspension comes on the heels of Cano suffering the first significant injury of his tenure in Seattle.

Given everything we've seen from voters in recent years however, it's not looking good for Cano.
