“We are aware of an active investigation by Major League Baseball regarding a matter that occurred when the player in question was a member of another organization and not affiliated with the San Diego Padres. We will have no further comments until the investigation process has concluded,” the San Diego Padres stated.

Brian Warecki, Senior Vice President of Communications for the Pirates also made a brief statement.

“We are aware of the matter under investigation and are fully cooperating. We will refrain from making further comments at this time.”

Marcano was claimed off waivers by the Padres in November of last year, but since then, he has not appeared in a complete game during his second stay with the team. Before joining the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2021, he played in 25 games with the Padres. In July of that same year, he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear.
