SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano apologized to his teammates, the organization and the fans for his 80-game suspension for violating baseball's drug agreement.Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic that can be used to mask performance-enhancing drugs."I wanted to apologize genuinely to the city of Seattle and to all the fans and the young baseball players in the (United) States and the (Dominican Republic) and most importantly to my teammates," Cano said. "I wanted to show my face to you guys. I don't think for me it's fair to just come back and walk into the clubhouse."I wanted to do this earlier. But I don't want to be a distraction for the team. So I was waiting for the right time."Cano said he couldn't discuss details of the testing process but maintained the substance was prescribed to him in the Dominican Republic for the treatment of a medical issue."I've been getting tested for the last 12 seasons and I've never had an issue with MLB policy," he s...

SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano apologized to his teammates, the organization and the fans for his 80-game suspension for violating baseball's drug agreement.Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic that can be used to mask performance-enhancing drugs.Cano said it was prescribed to him in the Dominican Republic to address a medical issue.He said the suspension was the most difficult thing he's dealt with in his life outside of the death of his grandfather. He's remained close to the team and does workouts at Safeco Field before the team arrives each day. He will head to his father's academy in the Dominican Republic in the near future to begin ramping up his baseball work.With Dee Gordon excelling at second base in Cano's absence, Cano said he was open to whatever role the team wants him to play upon his return. He is ineligible for postseason play.Cano went on the disabled list on May 14 with the suspension being handed down the following day. The Mariners have a 34-16 record in the 50 games Cano has missed. Barring any postponements, Cano is eligible to return to the Mariners on Aug. 14.___More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball

Mon Jun 417:20Reality check about to arrive for first-place Mariners
SEATTLE (AP) — The last time the Seattle Mariners were in first place this deep into the season, the current hitting coach was the designated hitter, the current "Special Assistant to the Chairman" was hitting .352 at the top of the order, and the club won 93 games but missed the playoffs.Yes, it has been a long time since Edgar Martinez and Ichiro Suzuki had the Mariners in contention like they are right now."We just love playing for each other right now," pitcher Marco Gonzales said. "We're all rallying around each other and it's a lot of fun to be out there."The Mariners started Monday at 37-22 and with a one-game lead in the AL West, a position they haven't held this far into a season since late August 2003. That's nearly 15 years since the club has sniffed the clear air of the division lead outside the early stages of the regular season. An entire generation of Little Leaguers in the Pacific Northwest who look up to the likes of Nelson Cruz, James Paxton and Dee Gordon have neve... [More]
