Braun visits Brewer teammates

Published On: Sep 18 2013 09:09:10 PM CDT

MILWAUKEE -

Suspended slugger Ryan Braun has visited the Milwaukee Brewers for the first time since telling his teammates in July that he accepted a 65-game ban as a result of baseball's investigation into a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Wednesday that Braun had wanted to visit his teammates for a while but didn't want to be a distraction. Roenicke said Braun just stopped by to say hello.

Braun tested positive for elevated testosterone in October of his 2011 NL MVP season, but his 50-game suspension was overturned when an arbitrator ruled that the urine sample was mishandled. He then agreed to the longer penalty July 22.

The five-time All-Star visited the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin earlier Wednesday.
