Yasmani Grandal statement

|

"Last November, I admitted taking a banned substance and accepted my punishment of a 50-game suspension.  I have taken full responsibility for my actions and apologized to my teammates, the fans and the San Diego Padres organization.  I plan to put that mistake behind me, serve my suspension and continue working hard to be the best player and teammate I can be. 

I am aware of the various press reports about so-called patient files from a Miami clinic, and that Major League Baseball and others are investigating those allegations.  I intend to cooperate fully in their investigations. I have been instructed by legal counsel not to answer questions relating to the pending investigations.  Based on that legal advice, I will have no further comment.

Again, I realize that I made a big mistake and I very much look forward to returning to the field."
