STATEMENT FROM NATIONALS SHORTSTOP TREA TURNER

Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner has issued the following statement: “There are no excuses for my insensitive and offensive language on Twitter. I am sincerely sorry for those tweets and apologize wholeheartedly. I believe people who know me understand those regrettable actions do not reflect my values or who I am. But I understand the hurtful nature of such language and am sorry to have brought any negative light to the Nationals organization, myself or the game I love.”
