Eight times All-Star, a batting average of 316 with 10 home runs and 30 points batted in the 2020 season, the shortest due to the pandemic, Cano was caught using Stanozolol, an anabolic steroid.
He was a repeat offender: 80 games were suspended in May 2018, mid-season therefore, because he was positive for furosemide, a prohibited diuretic.
He played with the Seattle Mariners. It is the first black day for the new owner of the second team of the Big Apple, Steve Cohen who bought the franchise two weeks ago and appointed Sandy Alderson president and Brodie Van Wagenen general manager.
"We are very disappointed with Cano's behavior," Alderson said. Jeff McNeil will be promoted in place of Cano to second base. Cano was the star of the Dominican Republic's 2013 world triumph in Miami.
