Robinson Cano suspended for season after testing positive for PEDs again

Robinson Cano’s 2021 season is over.

The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed that the Mets second baseman has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and has been suspended for the entirety of next season.

Cano, 38, will forfeit his $24 million salary for the upcoming season. He has two years and $48 million remaining on the deal.

Cano had previously tested positive for PEDs in 2018 when still a member of the Mariners. The Mets acquired him in a disastrous trade following that season in which they gave away top prospect Jarred Kelenic.

“We were extremely disappointed to be informed about Robinson’s suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program,” Sandy Alderson said in a statement.

“The violation is very unfortunate for him, the organization, our fans, and the sport. The Mets fully support MLB’s efforts toward eliminating performance enhancing substances from the game.”
