Seattle already knew Robinson Cano would be out of the Mariners lineup for several weeks, the result of a broken bone in his right hand. But now his absence will be significantly longer.

 

The All-Star second baseman was suspended for 80 games on Tuesday for violating baseball's drug agreement, becoming among the most prominent players disciplined under the sport's anti-doping rules. Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic that can be used to mask performance-enhancing drugs.
