After her son became the first player suspended in the wake of MLB's investigation into the Biogenesis scandal, Diane Braun wept.

"I will always love and support my son," she told USA TODAY Sports' Bob Nightengale. "That will never change."

Braun, a native of Southern California who attended the University of Miami on a three-quarters academic and one-quarter baseball scholarship, denied receiving performance-enhancing drugs from the anti-aging clinic during spring training, claiming that his attorneys hired Biogenesis founder Tony Bosch as a consultant during his successful appeal of a failed PED test in 2011.

In a statement that accompanied news of the suspension on Monday, Braun apologized to his teammates and fans.

"As I have acknowledged in the past, I am not perfect," Braun said in a statement released by MLB that did not specifically mention Biogenesis. "I realize now that I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions."
