We don’t always do a post about a suspended player’s statement or apology. But given the one coming from Braves lefty Andrew McKirahan actually admits that, yeah, he tried to take some stuff, it is rather novel. No “I have no idea how that stuff got in my system” from him.
A source said McKirahan apologized to his teammates yesterday and informed them he had used a cream during Spring Training. #Braves

And his statement:
“I am extremely sorry for letting down the Atlanta Braves organization, my coaches, teammates and the Braves fans. I also sincerely apologize to my family, who has helped me reach this point in my career. This is in no way a reflection of my character or morals. I will work hard during my suspension and pray that everyone will find it in their hearts to forgive me. I hope to have the privilege and opportunity to return to the Atlanta Braves later this season, to earn back their trust and to do everything possible to contribute to the success of the organization.”
