BASEBALL PLAYER RYAN BRAUN WON HIS APPEAL OF 50 GAMES
Mon, 27 Feb 2012 12:36 PM EST

National League MVP Ryan Braun’s 50-game suspension was overturned by baseball arbitrator Shyam Das, and sources announced that Big league Baseball is weighing the chance of suing in federal court to reverse the decision. NFL spreads

Braun’s case marks the 1st time a baseball player has favorably challenged a drug-related charge in a grievance.

The decision was announced by the Major League Baseball Players Association, one day before the 28-year-old outfielder
was due to report to spring training with the Milwaukee Brewers in Maryvale, Ariz. NFL lines

“I am really pleased and relieved by today’s resolution,” Braun said in a press release. “It is step one in restoring my good reputation and name. We were able to get thru this because I am innocent and the truth is on the right side.

“We provided complete cooperation throughout in spite of the highly unusual concerns. I have been an open book, content to share information from every part of my life as part of this inquiry, simply because I have nothing to hide. I have passed over 25 drug tests in my career, including at least three during the past year.”

Two resources declared that Braun testified he never used performance-enhancing drugs, but that he and his delegates in no way disputed the proven fact that a 2nd test on his urine sample showed exogenous testosterone in his body, meaning it came from an external source.

Braun didn’t argue evidence of messing and didn’t challenge the science, but disagreed protocol had not been followed.

MLB officials, however, argued that there wasn’t any question regarding the chain of custody or the integrity of the sample, and that Braun’s members did not argue the test itself was defective.

Resources related MLB is livid and is gauging the likelihood of suing in federal court to have Das’ decision overturned, but that they did not expect a choice to be made till after Das concerns his written report within the next week or so and MLB barristers have a chance to review it. There are very limited grounds by which either party could sue, but resources expounded MLB officers believe Das’ ruling was based on a defective reading of the policy.

Someone familiar with the condition related that, after being informed of the positive outcome, Braun asked to have another urine test taken, and therefore the second test was within ordinary range.

An evidentiary hearing on Braun’s appeal was placed Jan. 19-20 in NY, ending the day before the player accepted the National League MVP award at a black-tie dinner.

Braun hit .312 with 33 homers and 111 RBIs last year, and led Milwaukee to the National League Championship Series, where the Brewers lost to the ensuing World Series champ St. Louis Cardinals. The Brewers are counting on his offense subsequent the departure of Prince Fielder, who changed into an independent agent and signed with the Tigers.

Braun already was signed thru 2015 when the Brewers gave him a new contract running through 2020 that added $105 million and guaranteed him has a grand total of $145.5 million over 10 years.

Braun’s Brewers teammates were excited to be getting him back for the entire season.
