New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and his agent Scott Boras told Michael O’Keeffe and Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News that there is no truth to the rumors of his pending suspension for failing a performance-enhancing drug test:

"You can’t control what people say," Cano said. "There’s a lot of negative stuff out there and I can’t control that. I have to stay above that. There’s been the same thing for a long time. It’s something I can’t control."

Boras told The News that his office was able to trace the allegations to a rumor that originated in the Dominican Republic, a reporter in the U.S. and a rival agent. O’Keeffe and Feinsand noted that Cano’s friendship with San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, who tested positive for PED’s earlier this season, "made him a natural target."

Cano is in the midst of another impressive season. The 29-year-old has hit .299/.370/.535 with forty-two doubles and thirty home runs over 568 at-bats.
