MLB Injury News:
It was reported last year that Ryan Braun took PED's and was likely to be suspended. That never happened. But a report today from ESPN's Outside the Lines says that a suspension for Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez and other unknown players appears likely to happen during or a little bit after the all-star break.
While we don't know the other players involved, it has been reported that Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera and Nelson Cruz. While the league hasn't met with Alex Rodriguez about PED's, it is being reported that he will likely be suspended as well. It isn't known if Braun and A-Rod will be suspended for 50 or 100 games, but the league was reportedly looking to suspend them for 100 games.
This news doesn't come as a major shock, but it is surprising given the timing. The writing, however, was written on the walls that Braun and Rodriguez were going to be suspended for this, but we just didn't know when they were going to be suspended. The report also says that "as many as 20 players" could be suspended by next week's all-star break.
Losing Braun will be a crushing blow to the Brewers, as they were already struggling. They won't be contenders this year, but still, losing a player such as Ryan Braun for any length in time is bad. A-Rod was rehabbing in the minors to try to make a comeback, but it appears that he won't step foot on a big league diamond for some time. On the year, Braun was hitting .304 with nine home runs and 36 RBI's. It isn't set in stone that they will be suspended, but it appears likely.
