Ryan Bruan back in action Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) As expected, the thumb ailment that has plagued Brewers slugger Ryan Braun all season is not plaguing him badly enough Thursday to keep him out the lineup against visiting Miami.

Braun returns without a multi-hit game since Aug. 25.


Ryan Braun expected to return Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was out of the lineup for the second straight game Wednesday, but he's expected to be back in action Thursday, MLB.com reports. He's been sidelined by a thumb injury.

Manager Ron Roenicke said Braun was "fine to play" Wednesday but still held him out of the lineup. Braun has hit .272/.324/.470 with 18 home runs, 78 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 470 at-bats, though he's done significantly worse since the All-Star break.


Ryan Braun sidelined again Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) The thumb injury that has plagued Brewers slugger Ryan Braun all season has him out of the lineup again Wednesday night against Miami.

Braun has not managed a multi-hit game since Aug. 25. He is 7 for 41 since then. He owns a very uncharacteristic .272/.324/.470 slugging percentage on the year.


Ryan Braun out Tuesday with hand/thumb issue


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup Tuesday. He has been dealing with a thumb injury but also has an issue with his hand, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"We'll see how Braun is physically tomorrow," manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday. "He's got a little hand thing. I don't know if it's just the thumb. He's been battling that. That's part of the reason, I'm sure, that he hasn't been swinging the bat like he has (in the past). It's been going on for over a week now. There's definitely some physical issues there and there's definitely some mental issues there. A lot of times that physical part, because you know you can't do things the same way, now mentally you know you can't and you try to alter things and it usually doesn't go well."

Braun has been dealing with the thumb issue since last season. He has hit .273/.323/.471 with 18 home runs, 78 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 469 at-bats.


Struggling Ryan Braun moved down in order


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/8/2014) With Carlos Gomez back in the lineup Monday against the Marlins, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke dropped outfielder Ryan Braun to fifth in the lineup for the first time since July 12 and only the fourth time all season.

"Just trying to get him in a spot where (he can succeed)," Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We need him to start swinging like we're used to seeing him swing. When he's swinging the bat well, like he should, I want him hitting third."

Braun hasn't been swinging the bat well for a long while now. He's batting .194 in his last 10 games and .254 with a .739 OPS in 79 games since the start of June. He refuses to blame his injured thumb for his struggles, though.

"I'd rather not even discuss it," he said. "It just is what it is. It is just there, and I just deal with it the best that I can. Obviously some days are better than others, but this is a time of the season where everybody is hurt."


Ryan Braun a late addition to Saturday lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke indicated that outfielder Ryan Braun will be in a revised version of Saturday's starting lineup, MLB.com reports.

Braun was not in the initial version of Saturday's lineup due to a thumb injury, but he must have responded well during batting practice, so the team will roll with him in the lineup. Braun has hit .275/.326/.478 with 18 home runs, 77 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 458 at-bats.

Ryan Braun at loss to find solution to thumb problem


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) The thumb ailment that has plagued Brewers slugger Ryan Braun since last season continues to flare up and affect him on occasion. There appears to be no immediate solution.

"We've discussed a lot of different options," Braun told Brew Beat. "We're constantly evaluating it. We've talked to a lot of people. There's some thought that it could just eventually go away. And I think if there was a surgery that everybody was really confident would heal the injury and there wouldn't be any side effects, we would have already done it."

Braun has not produced this year to the same level to which he had grown accustomed. He still owns a .279/.331/.483 stat line on the season, but he has slumped recently and is on pace to hit just 20 home runs.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
