"Today's a new era, a new journey," said Marte, who finished 1 for 3 in his first game since April 17. "It feels great. I felt good and I'm just excited to continue battling out there and helping get victories for our team."
"With much embarrassment and helplessness, I ask for forgiveness for unintentionally disrespecting so many people who have trusted in my work and have supported me so much," he said. "I promise to learn the lesson that this ordeal has left me."
