Newly-voted National League MVP Ryan Braun from the Milwaukee Brewers has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs -- but the baseball star is challenging the accusations.
According to multiple reports, Braun was tested during the playoffs this year -- and the test showed his system contained elevated levels of testosterone.
28-year-old Braun is fighting the results, telling the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, he's the victim of "highly unusual circumstances" -- adding, "This is all B.S. I am completely innocent."
Braun faces a 50-game suspension if the results are upheld.
