Press Release

Statement from Jenrry Mejia

The Major League Baseball Players Association released the following statement on behalf of Ervin Santana:

"I know the rules are the rules and I will accept my punishment, but I can honestly say I have no idea how a banned substance ended up in my system.

"I have been through a lot in my young career and missed time due to injury. I have worked way too hard to come back and get to where I am, so I would never knowingly put anything in my body that I thought could hold me out further.

"I'm sorry to the Mets organization, my teammates and the fans, as well as my family.

"In life, I know God puts certain obstacles in your path and this is something else I know I will overcome."
