Nike has severed ties with Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who is currently serving a 65-game suspension, ESPN's Darren Rovell reports.

Braun, the 2011 National League MVP, was suspended last week by Major League Baseball for his ties to the Biogenesis of America clinic.

Braun has endorsed Nike during his seven-year career in the Majors, wearing Nike shoes and batting gloves. According to Rovell, the company had recently launched a Braun campaign, selling "Big Bat Like Braun" and "Braun Owns Milwaukee" T-shirts.

Nike parted ways with Lance Armstrong earlier this year after the cyclist confessed to using PEDs.
