Derek Lowe made his apology to Braves fans after showing up at the ballpark prior to Friday’s game against the Cardinals.

“I would like to apologize to my family, teammates, fans and the Braves organization for the attention arising from this matter, however I am hopeful that this incident will not be a distraction to the Braves organization while we are focused on returning to the playoffs,” he said in a statement. “This is a legal matter and I anticipate this case can promptly be resolved within the court system.”

The Braves confirmed afterwards that Lowe would start as scheduled on Sunday.

“We don’t condone it. We don’t like it,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “But it happens. It happens in all walks of life, all professions. It’s not good. He’s got to go through some legal stuff that everybody goes through. Hopefully, our guys learn a lesson from it.”
