Ryan Braun wins appeal

NEW YORK (AP) — People familiar with the case tell The Associated Press there may never be a written decision explaining why Ryan Braun’s drug suspension was overturned.

The arbitrator who threw out the 50-game suspension of the NL MVP has been asked by the players’ union and management to hold off giving his reasoning while they negotiate changes to their rules for collecting specimens. If players and owners reach agreement on the changes, the Feb. 23 decision by arbitrator Shyam Das to overturn the penalty for the Milwaukee outfielder could be allowed to stand without any written explanation, the people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the process is designed to be confidential.

Travis Tygart of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says “it’s obviously disappointing because people deserve to know.”
