According to an ESPN report on Tuesday night, Brewers all-star Ryan Braun and as many as 20 other MLB players face suspensions for their connections to a performance-enhancing drugs scandal.

ESPN's "Outside the Lines" is reporting that Tony Bosch, founder of Miami-based Biogenesis of America, has agreed to cooperate with MLB's investigation into his now-defunct business, who allegedly distributed PED's to several major league players, with Braun's name coming up in records, along with Alex Rodriguez and others. 

The report states that Braun and Rodriguez could face 100-game suspensions for 2nd offenders of the league's performance-enhancing drug policy.  Their involement with Bosch would be counted as the first offense, while lying to MLB about their involvement would constitute the 2nd offense.

Braun had tested positive for PED's in October of 2011, but won his appeal the next spring and wasn't suspended.
