Braun staying mum about off-field situation
NEW YORK -- Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun declined to comment Monday about two off-the-field matters related to his successful appeal of a suspension during the offseason.

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association announced Monday they had mutually agreed to rescind Rockies catcher Eliezer Alfonzo's 100-game suspension for a banned substance, saying in a statement that, "Alfonzo's grievance challenging his suspension raised issues that were nearly identical to those resolved in the Arbitration involving Ryan Braun."

That announcement came a few hours after The Associated Press reported that MLB had fired Shayam Das, the independent arbitrator who cast the deciding vote on a three-man panel that sustained Braun's appeal.

"I know nothing about the situation, so it's not for me to comment," Braun said.

Das had been the league's permanent arbitrator since 1999.
