Braun refused to answer MLB's questions in PED probe

MILWAUKEE (WXOW) -- Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun addressed the media following the team's game against the Reds on Tuesday night. Braun fielded a question about Tuesday's report on the biogenesis case. He was quoted by MLB.com's Adam McCalvy:

"In regards to that whole crazy situation, the truth still hasn't changed," Braun said. "I'm still going to continue to respect the process and not discuss anything in the media. Beyond that, the vast majority of stories that have come out are inaccurate. But aside from that I'm not going to say anything else tonight."

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Milwaukee Brewers' outfielder Ryan Braun refused to answer questions from Major League baseball about his connection to Tony Bosch and the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, sources told ESPN's "Outside the Lines."

The source told ESPN the meeting took place June 29 and was one of several meetings MLB has conducted with players thought to be connected to the clinic, which is at the center of an investigation into performance-enhancing drugs.

Braun has repeatedly denied using such drugs.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig's office is expected to suspend Braun, along with as many as 20 other players, sometime after next week's All-Star break, for their roles in the Biogenesis case, several sources told "Outside the Lines."

Sources said the commissioner's office was considering 100-game bans for Braun and New York Yankees' third baseman Alex Rodriguez, the punishment for a second offense, even though neither player has been previously suspended for violating MLB's drug policy.
