Arbitration Panel Hears Braun’s Appeal Of 50 Game Suspension
Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun had his appeal heard n Thursday afternoon according to reporters Bill Madden, Andy Martino and Teri Thompson of the New York Daily News:
Ryan Braun, the National League’s Most Valuable Player, pleaded his case Thursday before a three-member panel that will decide whether he faces a 50-game suspension for testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone.
The appeal came just two days before Braun will accept his MVP award at the New York Chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s dinner Saturday night at the New York Hilton, sources familiar with Braun told the Daily News.
Braun says he is innocent and disputes the results of two PED tests that showed “insanely high” levels of synthetic testosterone in his bloodstream.
The Milwaukee outfielder faces long odds, no baseball player has ever seen a suspension overturned by the arbitration panel, according to people familiar with the process.
