The 80-game suspension is mandatory for a first offense for PED usage.

Cano has been in the Major League Baseball for 13 years and has amassed 305 home runs, 1206 RBI's and 2,417 hits during his career.

Cano has played at least 150 games each season since 2007. He wrote: "According to off-the-record sources and non-official reports, Dominican All-Star Robinson Cano will be suspended for steroid use".
