National League MVP Ryan Braun, a Milwaukee Brewer who was accused of using performance enhancing drugs after testing positive for a banned substance, is in the clear.
An investigation into the charges revealed that the substance he tested positive for was NOT from a performance enhancing drug, but rather a medication he's using for private medical use.
Sources have said, "The medication contained banned substances resulting in the positive test."
The Major League Baseball player's ailment isn't being publicized, which is fine by us, but it must have been diagnosed relatively recently because sources confirm he's always tested negative for banned substances.
This is definitely good news for the sport of baseball! It would be a shame for yet ANOTHER tremendously talented athlete to be caught using performance enhancing drugs to up his game.
