Ryan Braun has won his appeal, adjust your fantasy rankings accordingly
Braun tested positive in early October for high testosterone levels. A second, independent test a few weeks later was negative, and Braun maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.
This is the first time anyone has successfully appealed a positive drug test since the MLB started suspending players for positive tests.
Braun instantly shoots to the top 5 in fantasy leagues. Last year, he hit .332 with 33 HR and 111 RBI and had a .994 OPS.
This is huge news for the Brewers, who already lost slugger Prince Fielder to free agency.
