December 11, 2011 by staff
MVP Reportedly Tests Positive For PEDs, Ryan Braun, the National League’s Most Valuable Player, has reportedly tested positive for a performanceenhancing drug.
According to a report by ESPN, Braun is disputing the test results through arbitration. If the positive test is upheld, the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder would face a 50-game suspension.
A urine test during the playoffs contained elevated levels of testosterone, ESPN reported, and Braun was notified a month before he was named MVP.
“There are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan’s complete innocence and demonstrate there was absolutely no intentional violation of the program,” a Braun spokesman said.
“While Ryan has impeccable character and no previous history, unfortunately, because of the process we have to maintain confidentiality and are not able to discuss it any further, but we are confident he will ultimately be exonerated.”
Braun, the 2007 NL Rookie of the Year, led the league this past season with a .994 OPS and .597 slugging percentage and finished second with a .332 batting average, 336 total bases and 109 runs scored.
He finished fourth with 111 RBI and tied for sixth with 33 home runs, leading the Brewers to the NL Central crown.
