Former Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez knows what lies ahead for ex-teammate Robinson Cano.
Cano was suspended 80 games for testing positive for the diuretic Furosemid, which is used as a masking agent. He is currently serving that suspension as he nurses his fractured hand he sustained during an at-bat.
Rodriguez, who was spending for the entire 2014 season for his own PED use, thinks the road will be tough for Cano. But he believes he will land on his feet.
"I do know that it will be a long road back, a tough road back, but I'm confident that Robinson Cano is going to come back and continue his spectacular career and I hope at the same time he can learn a great lesson and make his life even better," Rodriguez said during his ESPN broadcast on "Sunday Night Baseball."
Cano and Rodriguez were Yankees teammates for nine straight seasons, where they won a World Series in 2009. Before A-Rod began serving his suspension in 2014, Cano was signed for the Mariners in free agency on a 10-year, $240 million deal.
Looking at Rodriguez' case, he returned to the MLB for two more seasons with the Yankees before hanging up his cleats in 2016. He is obviously still a part of game, working as a color commentator for both FOX and ESPN.
