For Detroit Tigers 3B Jeimer Candelario, the news came as a surprise. He shares a connection with Cano, as their fathers both played together within the Houston Astros system; he also keeps in regular contact and works out with him.

Candelario plans to reach out to Cano; the former said he was unaware that the latter could have been taking any kind of PEDs.

Candelario, who previously played for the Chicago Cubs, was acquired by Detroit in 2017 in the deal that saw Alex Avila and Justin Wilson head to the Windy City. This past season, Candelario hit .297 with 7 home runs and 29 RBI in 52 games, and led the Tigers with 21 extra-base hits.
