Just a few days ago, Robinson Canó fractured his right hand after being hit by a pitch and we still didn't have a diagnose of how much time will he be on the sidelines. But for some reasons very apart from the injury, Canó now will out of the game for a long time.

According to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Heyman, the Seattle Mariners' player will be suspended by the MLB for violating baseball’s joint drug agreement. These sources say that the Dominican will be ruled out for 80 games.

 

It is not clear on which substance Canó tested positive, however, Rosenthal says that this suspension has nothing to do with the player's injury, as the case was pending at the time that Canó broke his hand.

Previously, the Seattle Mariners star was involved in rumors that accused him of using performance-enhancing drugs in 2012, but none of these accusations were proved at that time
