The MLB released a statement, claiming Cano did not test positive for PED's, but he did test positive for Furosemide, a diuretic.

Eighty games is the standard suspension for a first-time offender. Cano hadn't missed a game this season and hasn't played in fewer than 150 games in any of the past 11 seasons.

The eight-time All-Star selection was batting.287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this season, his fifth with Seattle. Cano is now 583 hits away from 3,000 and was a shoe-in for Cooperstown.
