Robinson Cano says he accepts the apology of a North Carolina television reporter who reported false information two weeks ago when he tweeted that the second baseman had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

"These days, people can say anything they want about yourself,'' Cano said. "There's a lot of things you can't control. If I say that as a player, I might get sued. Somebody can say anything about you but at least you 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.''

Dan Tordjman of WSOC-TV in Charlotte used Twitter to apologize for his reporting false information about Cano. Tordjman's television station also issued an on-air apology.

Though Cano hasn't spoken with Tordjman, he has read the apologetic tweets and seen a video of the television station's apology.

Said Cano: "That's the kind of thing I don't really worry about because I know my situation.''
