"Recently I learned that I tested positive for a substance called furosemide, which is not a performance enhancing substance", he said.
That streak of avoiding the DL ended on Monday, when the Mariners sidelined him due to a broken bone in his right hand, suffered a day earlier.
Entering this year, Cano was putting together a career worthy of first-ballot induction into the Hall of Fame.
"For more than 15 years, playing professional baseball has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life", Cano said in part.

Apart from the duo, Mandeep Singh has been impressive having scored 245 runs so far but the others have been inconsistent. KXIP skipper R Ashwin, Mohit Sharma and Ankit Rajpoot were the unfortunate batsmen to get run-out.
In a statement released through the players' association, Cano said, "This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment".
As for how the rest of this will play out, Cano's current time on the disabled list will count as time served during his suspension.
Cano said he chose to accept the suspension because he does not deny consuming Furosemide, but called accepting the suspension "the most hard decision I have ever made in my life". Baseball's drug program doesn't distinguish between a healthy and unhealthy player.
"It's surprising, because I know Robbie".
Gordon Beckham could see action at second base in Cano's place.

Cano is now out injured after suffering a broken bone in his hand after being hit by a pitch. The Milwaukee Brewers have found with Ryan Braun that there isn't much of a market for disgraced former stars even if they go back to having success. Cano was examined Tuesday in Philadelphia by Dr Randall Culp and is expected to have surgery on the injury on Wednesday.
In 39 games this season, Cano slashed.287/.385/.441 with four homers and 23 RBI for the Mariners, who now face the challenge of replacing a huge contributor in the middle of the Mariners lineup in the wake of Cano's suspension and hand injury.
Cano is an eight-time MLB All-Star with 305 career home runs and more than 2,400 hits. He is making $24 million this season, so the expected almost 50 percent of his 2018 pay is now going away with the suspension.
