MIAMI -

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he has talked to slugger Ryan Braun about how he was linked to a defunct Florida clinic being probed by Major League Baseball in the sport's latest drug investigation.

Roenicke said Braun is "doing good," and added that he knows the 2011 NL MVP will have to deal with some scrutiny once again.

Braun tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone during the 2011 postseason. Baseball suspended him for 50 games, a sanction that was overturned in spring training last year after an arbitrator ruled in Braun's favor due to chain of custody issues involving the sample.

Braun has said he used the person who ran the Biogenesis of America LLC clinic as a consultant in his defense.

Roenicke was speaking Saturday night at Florida International's baseball banquet.
