Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers left fielder also known as the "Hebrew Hammer," was vindicated of his doping charge today; sort of. A confidential source informed TMZ that the positive test for steroid use last week was actually the result of prescribed medication that he was taking to treat a “personal medical issue.” Neither the type of medication nor the ailment have been disclosed, and Braun doesn't say if he knew the medication contained banned substances before he took them. In a text message sent Saturday night Braun proclaimed "I'm innocent", and Creative Artists Agency, which represents Braun, also came to his defense, claiming the positive test involved “highly unusual circumstances”.
