Mark Teixeria and Robinson Cano spent some time together as teammates during their tenures with the New York Yankees. Cano’s inner circle with the Yankees included Melky Cabrera and Alex Rodriguez. Both of whom were popped with PED’s during their careers. After Robinson Cano just got hit with an 80 game suspension, Teixeria didn’t seem too shocked by the report.

“Yeah, I don’t really want to get into too much detail. I love Robbie. I’m just not surprised,” said Teixeira, a baseball analyst for ESPN since retiring after the 2016 season. “I don’t really want to go too much further, but I think a lot of people are kind of saying the same thing.”

Teixeria didn’t offer any other specifics to the situation but did infer that maybe Robinson Cano has been doing this for a long time. Cano was probably destined to go to the hall of fame one day but those chances may have ended an instant. Cano is now ineligible for postseason play this season and was already on the DL for a broken hand.

Robinson Cano Suspended 80 Games For PED Use

Teixeria did dive into what may have led into the papertrail for Cano to get involved in whatever substance that he was taking.

“Let’s just use this situation here. Robbie Cano’s assistant was on the list for Biogenesis,” Teixeira said, referring to the clinic at the center of MLB’s 2013 PED scandal. “Now, of course, [he] had an assistant, you know, buy stuff for him. Alex Rodriguez got popped by Biogenesis, and [former Yankees outfielder] Melky [Cabrera] got popped. They were best friends. When someone gets lumped into that group, it’s because there’s evidence. There’s a paper trail. There’s a smoke trail.”
