Press Release

Statement from Chris Colabello

The Major League Baseball Players Association is releasing the below statement on behalf of Chris Colabello.

"On March 13, I got one of the scariest and most definitely least expected phone calls of my entire life. I was informed by the Players Association that a banned substance was found in my urine. I have spent every waking moment since that day trying to find an answer as to why or how? The only thing I know is that I would never compromise the integrity of the game of baseball. I love this game too much! I care too deeply about it. I am saddened more for the impact this will have on my teammates, the organization and the fans of the Toronto Blue Jays. I hope that before anyone passes judgement on me they can take a look at the man that I am and everything that I have done to get to where I am in my career."
