MLB, players defend drug testing program again – MLB.com

NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball and its players’ union defended their drug testing program Friday and promised to tighten collection procedures following criticism by anti-doping agencies of an arbitrator’s decision to overturn NL MVP Ryan Braun’s 50-game suspension.

At a news conference in Phoenix, where he reported to the Milwaukee Brewers for spring training, Braun criticized drug testing by baseball as “fatally flawed,” citing the roughly 44-hour lag between when his urine was collected and when it was given to Federal Express for transport to a laboratory in Montreal.
