braun [1]UNDATED (AP)— Ryan Braun is admitting taking performance-enhancing drugs during his NL MVP season of 2011.

The suspended Milwaukee slugger says in a statement released by the Brewers that he took a cream and a lozenge containing banned substances while rehabilitating an injury.

Braun says, “It was a huge mistake for which I am deeply ashamed and I compounded the situation by not admitting my mistakes immediately.”

Braun tested positive for elevated testosterone in October 2011. But his 50-game suspension was overturned when an arbitrator ruled that the urine sample was mishandled.

Braun apologized to the collector of the urine sample, his teammates and Commissioner Bud Selig, saying: “”I have no one to blame but myself.”
