Jenks issues apology to Red Sox
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks, who was arrested for five misdemeanor charges early Friday morning, including DUI, issued a statement on Sunday expressing remorse for his actions.

"I am embarrassed by the situation and apologize to my teammates and to the Red Sox organization for any distractions I may have caused," said Jenks. "I still need to let the legal process run its course, and until it does, I will not be able to make any further comment."

Coming off multiple back surgeries during the winter, Jenks isn't expected to pitch for the Red Sox until at least June.
