Milwaukee Brewers outfielder and reigning National League MVP Ryan Braun has won his appeal and will not serve a 50 game suspension.
Braun went before a three member panel last month to argue that he should not serve a 50 game suspension for a failed drug test. Braun said of the panel's decision, "I am very pleased and relieved by today's decision".
Major League Baseball said in a statement that it "vehemently disagrees" with the panel's decision. The three member panel voted 2-1 to overturn Braun's suspension.
The panel consisted of MLB Players Association executive director Michael Weiner, MLB executive VP for labor relations Rob Manfred, and independent arbitrator Shyam Das. Das and Weiner were the ones that voted in favor of overturning Braun's suspension.
Braun has said ever since the result was announced in December, that his test was positive due to a medication that Braun has been taking. The failed test did not include a PED, but instead had a substance banned under MLB's drug policy.
