The Phillies sent out the following statement from team president David Montgomery after MLB officially announced Antonio Bastardo's 50-game suspension: 

“Obviously, the Phillies are very disappointed to learn of Antonio Bastardo's violation of Major League Baseball's Drug Program.

Hopefully the sanctions announced today will bring us closer to that day. We respect the fact that Antonio has acknowledged his serious mistake and accepted his 50-game suspension.”
