Statement of Yasmani Grandal regarding suspension under MLB’s Joint Drug Program

I apologize to the fans, my teammates, and to the San Diego Padres. I was disappointed to learn of my positive test and under the Joint Drug Program I am responsible for what I put into my body. I must accept responsibility for my actions and serve my suspension.
