The Major League Baseball (MLB) Commission decided to suspend Braun for the rest of the season without pay in connection with the MLB illegal doping scandal.
Braun in a released MLB statement says, "I wish to apologize to ...all of the baseball fans especially those in Milwaukee, the great Brewers organization, and my teammates...I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions." Braun's statement was posted on the MLB Twitter account. 
Tony Bosch, founder and operator of the Biogenesis of America, an anti-aging clinic had met with the MLB Commission and provided documents indicating phone orders and shipments of performance-enhancing drugs to 21 players suspected of taking them.
Bosch also testified against Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Braun, Yankee star Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod) and 19 other players in the league for taking performing-enhancement drugs.
Rodriguez is waiting his suspension as well, which evidence against him is more incriminating than Braun's. The other players are also facing up to 100 games suspensions.
