Robinson Cano said he has accepted the apology of the employee of a North Carolina television station who falsely tweeted last month that the New York Yankees second baseman had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and faced suspension from Major League Baseball.

"These days, people can say anything they want about yourself," Cano said. "There's a lot of things you can't control. If I said that as a player, I might get sued. Somebody can say anything about you but at least you can get an apology back. It didn't bother me because I know what was my situation. So I didn't get out of my game or anything like that."



Thursday, Dan Tordjman, the reporter at WSOC-TV in Charlotte, used Twitter to apologize for his bogus Sept. 21 report about Cano and donated $10,000 to Cano's foundation. Tordjman's television station also issued an on-air apology.

If anything, Cano's game has taken off since the false allegations. The hot hitting Cano heads into the American League division series against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday with a season-ending nine straight multi-game hit streak. He went 24-for-39 over that span with a blistering .615 batting average.

"I know I'm good and clean," said Cano. "Thanks God."

  • If it was the other way around Dan Tordjman would think he was getting a big payday. Thanks for being a good guy Cano
  • Dan Tordjman should have been fired.

    The worsening reliability of the media will further deteriorate beyond repair if yellow journalism remains unchecked and condoned.

    Or maybe it's already too late. It's now all scandalmongering tabloid.
