Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun was headed towards a completely normal offseason—unlike last winter when he was forced to defend himself against a positive test for illegal synthetic testosterone.
However, Braun's normal and quiet offseason came to a crashing halt on Tuesday.
In records obtained by Yahoo! Sports, Braun's name appeared in documents connected with the Miami-based anti-aging clinic that made news last week.
Biogenesis owner Anthony Bosch allegedly dispersed PEDs to several MLB stars, including Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon and others.
The original documents released in the Miami New Times article published last week spoke of monies owed, amounts of dosages of PEDs and other information linked to the original players listed in the documents.
Yahoo! Sports revealed on Tuesday that Braun's name appeared on three different documents as well.
Is Braun guilty or innocent?
Many officials within baseball believe that Braun got off on a technicality. In fact, MLB "vehemently disagreed" with the arbitration panel ruling in which arbitrator Shyam Das cast the deciding vote.
Baseball fans, however, seem to reserving judgement—for now.
Here is a breakdown of events and fans' comments associated with the latest news concerning Braun and his alleged link to PEDs.
