Ryan Braun will speak when 'able to'
It was the first comment made by Braun since being suspended Monday for the remainder of the 2013 season for violations of Major League Baseball's drug policy.
"See Mark [Attanasio's] comments or reference what he said," the statement read. "When I am able to, I will speak.
"I know it was difficult for everybody, but I was not, and still am not, legally allowed to say anything yet."
Braun's statement was in reference to the comments made by the Brewers' principal owner to reporters during Wednesday's game against the San Diego Padres.
"I think [Braun] has to get to the point where he can actually speak about this," Attanasio said. "Major League Baseball is in the midst of an ongoing investigation. He is obviously now cooperating with baseball. He is cooperating in such a way that he is going to let them conclude or get further into the investigation before he talks."
Attanasio is not yet aware of all the details of the case, saying Braun could not provide additional details due to the ongoing investigation.
