Mark Teixeira 'Not Surprised' By Robinson Cano Suspension

Mark Teixeira 'Not Surprised' By Robinson Cano Suspension

Teixeira, who is now a baseball analyst for ESPN, appeared on the Michael Kay Show on 98.7 ESPN New York on Thursday, and was asked about Cano's recent suspension. Alex Rodriguez got popped by Biogenesis and Melky got popped. Cano tested positive for the diuretic, furosemide, which is commonly used as a masking agent for drug tests and banned by Major League Baseball. "I don't think it's going to look that much differently to the point where you need a Bryce Harper or even a Manny Machado, for that standpoint".

"Yeah, I don't really want to get into too much detail", he said.

"I still think the Astros are a better team at full strength", he said.

In truth, for all his talent, the Yankees looked at Cano in a different light when, at the urging of his mentor, A-Rod, he changed agents from Scott Boras to Roc Nation and Jay-Z.

"You kinda know (who is doping)", Teixeira said Thursday. You see guys when they're young. "Fifty-percent of guys popped I'm like, of course, knew it, others are a little surprising". "Of course, he has an assistant, you know, buys stuff for him". Melky (Cabrera) got popped. They're his best friends. "There's a paper trail, there's a smoke trail".

MLB suspended Rodriguez for the entire 2014 season after the league found that he had received testosterone and human growth hormone from the Biogenesis clinic in Florida and then attempted to cover it up.
