Won the National League's most Valuable Player Award after the 2011 season, and was promptly suspended for the first 50 games of the 2012 season, after testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. The suspension was later appealed to an arbitrator and overturned on what media reports described as "a technicality" Braun's urine sample had been held for 44 hours before being shipped to the testing facility, and such lengthy delays can lead to unreliable test results. In 2013 he was suspended for the season's last 65 games for involvement in another steroids scandal.
