MLB Suspends Brewers Ryan Braun For Remainder of 2013 Season

Image

The first of what will probably be a long list of suspensions has been announced by Major League Baseball.  Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season and postseason for violating the leagues drug policy.  Braun will not appeal the suspension.

Braun’s suspension is the result of MLB’s probe into the now defunct Biognesis clinic which apparently supplied as many as 20 players with performance enhancing  drugs.  Further disciplinary action is expected to be taken over the next few weeks against others players who were linked to Biogenesis.

In 2011 Braun was very nearly suspended after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs but he suspension was later overturned on appeal.
