Milwaukee (WQOW) -- Ryan Braun's return after a month on the disabled list is a story, but so is Tuesday's ESPN report about Braun recently refusing to answer questions from Major League Baseball about his involvement with the Biogenesis Clinic in Miami.
The questions Braun faces after Tuesday night's game are more of those that he doesn't seem to want to answer.
"In regards to that whole crazy situation," says Braun, "you know, the truth still hasn't changed, I'm still going to continue to respect the process and not discuss anything in the media. Beyond that, I think the vast majority of stories that have come out are inaccurate, but aside from that, I'm not going to say anything else about it."
Braun says he was informed about the ESPN report Tuesday afternoon, but then went 1-3 at the plate in Milwaukee's 2-0 win over Cincinnati.
I think I'm numb to the emotions of the whole thing," says Braun, "I think I've dealt with it for so long so I think I do a pretty good job of not being distracted by it."
Tuesday morning, Braun talks with WISN-TV in Milwaukee, about finally being able to come off the disabled list after dealing with a nagging thumb injury.
"I'm really excited," Braun says, "I feel like it's been a really long time since I've played, it feels like it's been a lot longer than a month, it's been difficult to watch and not contribute on the field, I'm just really looking forward to getting out there and competing, hopefully help us win some games and be a part of some better baseball and some more winning baseball."
