Another superstar possibly cheating in baseball has been caught.

Mariners' second baseman Robinson Cano will be banned 80 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug (PEDs).

The eight-time All-Star was hitting .287 with four homers and 23 RBIs this season. This will certainly destroy his possible hall-of-fame chances and he had a legitimate shot if he had continued to produce in the next few years.

For his 14-year career, he was batting .304 with 2,417 hits, 305 homers, and 1206 RBIs.

Cano released a statement soon after the announcement was made about the failed drug test.

"For more than fifteen years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life. I would never do anything to cheat the rules of the game that I love, and after undergoing dozens of drug tests over more than a decade, I have never tested positive for a Performance Enhancing Substance for the simple reason I have never taken one."
