Robinson Cano Out a Season and $24 Million After Failing PED Test

Robinson Cano is suspended for the year and will miss out on $24 million after he failed a test for performance enhancing drugs, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN:

The reason for the full-season suspension is that Cano previously faced an 80-game suspension for failing a PED test in 2018. His former Yankees teammate, Mark Teixeira, said matter-of-factly at the time that he was not surprised.

After this season, Cano still has two more years remaining on a 10-year, $240 million contract that he originally signed with the Mariners before the 2014 season.

  1. He’s on his last big contract. The cost with 3 years left to FA is higher than any monetary benefit. Doesn’t many financial sense except he’s been on PEDs most of his career and never worried about being caught or the cost. Just kept doing what he knows.
