Found July 09, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
  According to a report courtesy T.J Quinn and Mike Fish of ESPN Outside the Lines, Major League Baseball, is set to suspend several players including Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun and New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, for their involvement with the Biogenesis clinic in Miami. Ryan Braun, who has repeatedly denied using performance-enhancing drugs, refused to answer questions during a recent meeting with Major League Baseball about his connection to Tony Bosch and the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, sources told “Outside the Lines.” Commissioner Bud Selig’s office is expected to suspend Braun and Rodriguez, along with as many as 20 players sometime after next week’s All-Star break, several sources told “Outside the Lines.” As OTL reported, MLB started building cases against the players last month after Bosch agreed to cooperate with investigators. Things are about to get real in the MLB, my guess is these players won’t go down without a fight. I hope MLB has sufficient evidence to make the suspensions stick because they’re going to need it.
