Ryan Braun launched a solo homer and also a grand slam in Wednesday's victory over the Reds.
He also had a single and hit a laser right at right fielder Jay Bruce one of the two times he was retired. Braun's solo shot went to right field off of Michael Lorenzen, and his grand slam off of Jumbo Diaz in the eighth was pulled over the left-center field wall. After receiving a couple days of rest, Braun now has three homers over the last two days. Perhaps this will be a turning point for him. Apr 29 - 3:45 PM

Ryan Braun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Braun had been held hitless since April 23 until he lifted a Johnny Cueto offering over the fence in right field in the seventh inning. It reduced the Brewers' deficit to 4-2. Braun has been hampered by an undisclosed injury lately and owns a disappointing .227/.271/.318 batting line with two home runs and five RBI on the season.

Ryan Braun is in Tuesday's lineup against the Reds.

Braun was out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday, but it was apparently a manager's decision. However, he'll bat third Tuesday against Reds ace Johnny Cueto. Braun is hitting just .226 with one home run and a .547 OPS so far this season.

Ryan Braun said that he's not absent from Monday's lineup due to injury.

Braun missed Sunday's game with an undisclosed physical issue, but he insists that him not being in there on Monday is a manager's decision. "We won yesterday, guys played well so run with it," Braun said." Wins are the most important thing. Both (Jordan) Schafer and Gerardo (Parra) played well," said Braun. Braun is batting just .230/.277/.279 with one homer in the early going this season.

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' lineup again Monday with an undisclosed injury.

Braun requested the day off Sunday due to a physical issue not related to his surgically-repaired right thumb and has now missed two straight starts. He's dealt with a rib cage ailment this month but it's unclear at the moment if that's what's bothering him again. The Brewers should provide more on his status later Monday. Gerardo Parra is in right field again in Braun's place.

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day of rest for the struggling slugger. Aramis Ramirez is also getting a breather, as Gerardo Parra is in right field and Hector Gomez is at third base.

Ryan Braun went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

Braun also struck out twice. The former MVP has yet to hit anything other than a single. With 58 at-bats in the books, the small sample size is growing larger day-by-day. Braun's slashing just .241/.279/.293. The extra-base knocks should come eventually, but his days as a middle-of-the-lineup star could be fading.
Apr 25 - 2:20 AM

Ryan Braun provided the Brewers their only run with a ninth-inning solo home run in Monday's loss to the Reds.

The Brewers entered the bottom of the ninth trailing 6-0, so Braun's solo homer -- his first of the season -- off of Burke Badenhop barely made a dent. Braun has been off to a slow start this season, currently slashing .238/.273/.310 in 44 trips to the dish.
Apr 20 - 9:47 PM

In his first career start leading off, Ryan Braun hit two singles against the Pirates.

Braun finished the game 2-for-3. While the singles are nice, they marked a continuation of an odd start for Braun. After smacking 30 doubles and 19 home runs last season, Braun has yet to notch his first extra-base hit of the 2015 season. The power should come eventually, but it should be remembered that the former MVP underwent experimental thumb surgery in October.

Ryan Braun is serving as the Brewers leadoff hitter for the first time in his career on Saturday.

Braun has struggled in the early going, slashing just .226/.250/.226, so perhaps the move was made to try to get him going. With Carlos Gomez sidelined, the Brewers are in desperate need of a spark atop their lineup.
Apr 18 - 3:48 PM

Ryan Braun (rib cage) went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts in his return to the lineup Friday against the Pirates.

Braun had a pinch-hit single on Wednesday, but this was his first time back in the lineup since tweaking his rib cage on Monday. The Brewers will likely continue to monitor him, but it looks like he's good to go.
Apr 11 - 12:35 AM

Ryan Braun (rib cage) is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun hasn't started a game since tweaking his rib cage on Monday, although he did have a pinch-hit single Wednesday. There's always a chance he could aggravate the injury, but Braun needs to be in daily fantasy lineups against left-hander Jeff Locke.
Apr 10 - 3:18 PM

Ryan Braun was used as a pinch-hitter Wednesday against the Rockies and had an infield single.

Braun certainly didn't seem to be protecting his oblique while taking his first couple of cuts. The hit, though, came on a dribbler down the third-base line. He stayed in the game to run afterwards, but since he was hitting in the pitcher's spot, he didn't remain in for the 10th. We're confidently guessing Braun will be in Friday's lineup after Thursday's off day.
Apr 8 - 11:16 PM

Ryan Braun (rib cage) is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke expressed hope that Braun would be ready to go, but with an off day Thursday it always made more sense to wait until Friday to play him. Gerardo Parra is in right field again for the Brew Crew on Wednesday night against the Rockies.
Apr 8 - 3:58 PM

An MRI taken Tuesday on Ryan Braun's sore rib cage showed no major structural damage.

Braun was forced from Monday's season-opener after tweaking a muscle in his rib cage while reaching for a ball in the outfield. He said Tuesday that he's already feeling much better and expects to return to the Brewers' starting lineup in the next day or two. Gerardo Parra is in right field on Tuesday night against the Rockies.
