Brewers' OF Cameron applying for exemption to use stimulants

PHOENIX (AP) -- New Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Mike Cameron says he will see a neurologist tomorrow to determine whether he has post-concussion syndrome and apply for an exemption to use stimulants otherwise banned by Major League Baseball.

Cameron told USA Today he suspects he still is feeling the effects of a violent outfield collision that ended his season in 2005. He says he might need stimulants to overcome his symptoms.

Cameron is suspended for the first 25 games of the 2008 season after twice testing positive for a banned stimulant. He has been playing in spring training exhibition games.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash says there are no guarantees that Major League Baseball officials will grant Cameron an exemption.
