MLB suspends Ryan Braun for remainder of the season

ryan-braunMajor League Baseball has suspended Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun without pay for the remainder of the 2013 season.

According to a statement from MLB, Braun’s suspension is for “violations of the Basic Agreement and its Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.”

Braun will not contest the suspension.  In a statement, Braun said: “As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect.  I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions. This situation has taken a toll on me and my entire family, and it is has been a distraction to my teammates and the Brewers organization.

“I am very grateful for the support I have received from players, ownership and the fans in Milwaukee and around the country. Finally, I wish to apologize to anyone I may have disappointed — all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates. I am glad to have this matter behind me once and for all, and I cannot wait to get back to the game I love.”

Braun’s suspension, effective immediately, will total 65 games and any postseason games.  The Brewers are currently 41-56 and in last place in the NL Central standings.
