"I am embarrassed and would like to apologize to my family, the Rangers organization and our fans that I was taken in on this charge," Soto said in the statement. "Because this is an ongoing case, I cannot discuss this matter any further at this time."
Soto, who hasn't played this season, has been rehabbing from knee surgery. He was moved from Triple A Round Rock to Double A Frisco Thursday and played last night for the Roughriders. He was stopped by the Grapevine police and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana under two ounces. He is free on $500 bail.
The club also released a statement Friday.
"The Rangers organization is aware of Wednesday night's incident involving Geovany Soto," the club said. "We have spoken to Geovany, and he has apologized and expressed deep embarrassment for the situation. We have notified Major League Baseball of the incident. As this is an on-going case, this is the only comment we will have at this time."
