NEW YORK - A published report says that Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun will talk publicly for the first time since testing positive for high levels of testosterone, which could lead to a 50-game suspension from Major League Baseball.
He is scheduled to talk when he receives his National League MVP award Saturday night in New York, according to the New York Times.
“He will be there and he will accept his award,” Matthew Hiltzik, a spokesman for Braun, told the Times.
Braun's offensive performance was one of the centerpieces of the Brewers' 2011 National League Central Division championship.
He batted .332, with 33 home runs and 111 RBI in 2011.
