Brewers' Braun talks about latest PED allegation news

MILWAUKEE - When the latest report of the newest possibility of Ryan Braun being suspended came, Ryan Braun was in the dugout waiting to play the Oakland A's at Miller Park.

After the Brewers' 4-3 win in 10 innings, Braun got the latest bombshell news on the case.

However, when the media came to his locker after the game, he said he was done talking about the Biogenesis clinic and the possibility he could be suspended up to 100 games.

"I've already addressed everything related to the Miami situation. I addressed it in spring training. I will not make any further statements about it," he said.

"The truth has not changed," he said.

Braun said the speculation was not affecting him on the field.

"No, of course not. I've dealt with this for two years now. I'm pretty good at avoiding distractions," he said.

The founder of Biogeneis, a Miami anti-aging clinic has agreed to talk to Major League Baseball about players linked to performance-enhancing drugs, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

The person declined to be identified because the investigation was still ongoing.

Information that Anthony Bosch provides MLB on players who came to the now-closed Biogenesis of America clinic could lead to suspensions.

Braun, Alex Rodriguez, Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera are among the players whose names have been tied to the clinic.

Braun failed a drug test in 2011, but his suspension was overturned by an arbitrator.

He has acknowledged that he was mentioned in Biogenesis records because his lawyers had used Bosch as consultant during the appeal.

If a 100-game suspension ruling happens after Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Braun would miss the remainder of the 2013 season.
