Ryan Braun made a brief statement through a Milwaukee Brewers' public relations spokesperson on Thursday afternoon the first comments of any kind from the team's embattled leftfielder since he was suspended for the season on Monday.

Braun's comments came in response to any queries the media might have made with regard to if and when he would be addressing his situation.

"See Mark (Attanasio's) comments or reference what he said" the statement said. "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 was referring to what the Brewers' principal owner had to say about Braun and his situation during an impromptu question-and-answer session in the Miller Park pressbox during Wednesday night's game.
