Story By Newswatch 12 Sports

- ESPN is reporting Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun could be suspended again.

Major League Baseball is expected to suspend 20 players, including Braun.

The players are connected to the Miami-area clinic having a scandal involving performance-enhancing drugs.

Tony Bosch, is the founder of the clinic. He reached an agreement this week to cooperate with MLB's investigation. It's believed he'll give the MLB ammunition officials need to suspend the players. He's expected to begin working with baseball in just a few days.


The report says the suspensions for Braun could be 100 games. The suspensions is expected in the next two weeks. If the suspensions are upheld, it would be the largest in American sports history.

Last year, Braun received a 50-game suspension. He had a positive drug test. However, he was the first player to win an appeal. He did not miss any games.
