The hits just keep on coming for Ryan Braun.. and not the ones he’s accustomed to.

Per a report from ESPN’s Darren Rovelle, Nike has officially cut all ties with the slugger. After being suspended for the rest of the season by MLB for PED use, it appears the company is ready to go elsewhere.

KeJuan Wilkins, a spokesman for the world’s largest shoe and apparel maker, acknowledged Friday that the company no longer has a relationship with Braun.

Braun had been wearing Nike shoes and batting gloves for his entire seven-year major league career, and the company recently began selling “Big Bat Like Braun” and “Braun Owns Milwaukee” T-shirts in stores.
