Brewers | Ryan Braun suspended

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season without pay for violations of baseball's drug program. Braun has accepted the penalty and will not appeal the suspension. Braun's suspension will take place immediately, meaning he'll be suspended for the final 65 games of the season.

Fantasy Tip: This comes as a huge surprise, as many believed any of the possible suspensions tied to MLB's Biogenesis investigation wouldn't take effect until the 2014 season. Braun is admitting his guilt by passing up the appeals process and cutting a deal with the league. This will be a huge to all of his owners, and you can cut him in all single-year formats.

Logan Schafer will benefit from Braun's suspension the most; he's expected to fill in as the starting left fielder now. Consider adding him in deep mixed leagues, especially if you had Braun on your roster.
