• Braun's former teammate Prince Fielder said on Tuesday he had no ill will toward Braun after learning about the suspension.

"I'm not a judge. I don't judge," Fielder said. "It's something he has to go through. It's something that's his business."

Fielder added: "We want to keep the game clean. It's a weird situation. It's unfortunate, but it seems like the tests are working and it's getting handled."

• In the same clubhouse as Fielder, Tigers right-hander and American League All-Star Game starter Max Scherzer offered a scathing criticism of Braun, saying, "I'm glad he got caught."

"For me, it's just not long enough," Scherzer said of Braun's season-long ban. "The Brewers are unlikely to make the playoffs. He misses 2013, and they're set for 2014. For somebody who cheated the game as badly as he did, it just doesn't seem right in my book."

When asked if Braun should be stripped of his 2011 National League MVP Award, Scherzer said, "Obviously we need to get more clarification from MLB and everything, but if we can assume the timeline right, I think it would be appropriate."
