"Today I chose to accept MLB's suspension".
"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called furosemide, which is not a performance enhancing substance", he said.
"I would never do anything to cheat the rules of the game that I love".
Cano said he was caught using a furosemide, which people throughout the game consider a drug masking agent.

Anand Ahuja is one such man and Sonam Kapoor is indeed very lucky to have a gem of a person like him in her life. Sonam accentuated her ensemble with loosely tied braided hair and accessorised it with jada choti by Amrapali.
Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta optimistic Massimiliano Allegri will continue success with Juventus
But Juventus did not take advantage of their advantage as they game lost its momentum although Dybala did have penalty appeals. Federico Fazio and Lorenzo Pellegrini both tried their luck while Aleksandar Kolarov's free-kick hit the side netting.
But ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn seems to disagree with Cano's assessment of the substance he tested positive for. During the appeal, Major League Baseball apparently was able to determine his intent, resulting in Cano dropping his appeal, the source said. This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment.
The former Yankees All-Star said in a statement, "while I did not realize at the time that I was given a medication that was banned, I obviously now wish that I had been more careful". He was placed on the disabled list Monday and, according to multiple reports, had surgery on Tuesday. Baseball's drug program doesn't distinguish between a healthy and unhealthy player. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.
Cano said he chose to accept the suspension because he does not deny consuming Furosemide, but called accepting the suspension "the most hard decision I have ever made in my life". "I look forward to rejoining my teammates later this season". "We will support Robinson as he works through this challenge".
"It's surprising, because I know Robby".
None of that, nor Cano's more conventional career stats (.304/.354/.493, 305 home runs, 522 doubles, 1,206 RBI, 1,168 runs scored while playing one of the most demanding positions on the diamond), nor his accolades (eight All-Star appearances, five Silver Slugger awards, two Gold Gloves) trump today's suspension announcement ... at least if recent history is any indication. So if you're going to make arguments or consider Hall votes based on legacies, it might make more sense to come down harder on those players actually busted for breaking the rules than those who happened to hit long home runs or throw blazing fastballs 15 or 20 years ago. (Cano's time on the DL counts toward his suspension.) The Mariners don't have a top middle-infield prospect close to the majors to turn to, but center fielder Dee Gordon said he is open to transitioning back to second, where he played the majority of his career entering this season. They gave a great player 80 games here.
