Ryan Braun returned to the Brewers' lineup and promptly slugged a solo home run in Thursday's win against the Marlins.

Braun homered in the second inning off of Nathan Eovaldi to put the Brewers up 1-0. He hadn't started since Monday due to a lingering right thumb injury which has affected his entire hand. Braun now has 19 home runs on the year along with 79 RBI and a .272/.323/.475 slash line.

Ryan Braun (thumb) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Marlins.

Braun didn't start Tuesday or Wednesday due to a lingering right thumb injury which has now become a full-blown hand issue. It's tough to expect much from him going forward in fantasy leagues. The hot-hitting Gerardo Parra will start in left field Thursday and Khris Davis is on the bench.

Ryan Braun (thumb) is out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night versus the Marlins.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters that Braun's lingering right thumb issue has now become a full hand issue. Milwaukee's medical staff is evaluating the star outfielder on a day-to-day basis. It's more bad news for a free-falling Brewers team, and Braun probably can't be counted on for much production the rest of the way in fantasy leagues. Gerardo Parra is starting in right field Tuesday.
Sep 9 - 5:59 PM

Ryan Braun (thumb) has been added to the Brewers' starting lineup Saturday against the Cardinals.

Braun's thumb was bothering him earlier Saturday, but he made it through a pregame workout with no major issues. He is hitting .275/.326/.478 with 18 home runs, 77 RBI, and 11 stolen bases on the season for the Brewers.

Sep 6 - 4:40 PM

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

No word yet on the reason for his absence, but the team should provide an update on his status shortly. He missed a pair of games earlier in the week to be present for the birth of his first child and has also battled an array of ailments throughout the season.
Sep 6 - 3:30 PM

Ryan Braun returned to the Brewers lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 in a victory over the Cardinals.

Braun missed the previous two contests to be present for the birth of his first child. He's been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season, slashing .275/.326/.478 with 18 homers, 77 RBI and 11 stolen bases.
Sep 6 - 4:36 AM

Ryan Braun will rejoin the Brewers on Friday.

Braun left the Brewers on Wednesday to be present for the birth of his first child. He'll miss his second straight game Thursday, but will be ready to go Friday.

Sep 4 - 4:24 PM

Ryan Braun won't be in Wednesday's lineup versus the Cubs, as he's flown back to Milwaukee for birth of his first child.

He won't go on paternity leave with rosters expanded, but Braun will miss at least one game. The Brewers host the Cardinals for a huge four-game set beginning on Thursday, so you can bet he'll do his best to make it back to the lineup quickly.
Sep 3 - 11:55 AM

Ryan Braun hit his 18th home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

The homer was a solo shot that did little to cut into the Giants' lead. He missed a chance to do more damage when he grounded into a double play with runners on first and third base in the first inning. The outfielder is hitting .276/.325/.483 with 76 RBI on the season.

Ryan Braun (quad) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Padres.

Braun made an early exit from Monday's blowout win after suffering a quad contusion, but not before going 3-for-4 with a homer. It was never a major concern.
Aug 26 - 5:57 PM

Ryan Braun left Monday's win over the Padres early with a quadriceps contusion, but not before going 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored.

Braun was lifted for pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra in the seventh inning of the laugher. He was inadvertently tripped by Padres first baseman Jake Goebbert in the first inning while trying to beat out an infield single. Braun said the injury was like having a charley horse above the knee. "I'm OK," he said. "I didn't want to come out; I was OK. Just a little banged up. It was pretty painful knee-to-knee contact. It didn't feel good for me and I know it didn't feel good for him, either. It was kind of one of those fluke plays that happens from time to time." The outfielder is 10-for-26 (.385) with six runs scored during his six-game hitting streak. Braun is slashing a healthy .282/.333/.492 and is on pace for 21 homers and 92 RBI. "Some swelling; kind of feels like I got hit by a pitch," he said after the game. "But hopefully I'll be OK. I was fine; I didn't need to come out of the game."
Aug 26 - 2:47 AM

Ryan Braun had an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Braun had one of the Brewers' seven doubles on the night, his only hit in four at-bats. It gave him his 70th RBI of the season, seventh-most in the National League. The outfielder has struggled in August as his thumb continues to bother him, and he owns a .275/.327/.482 line on the year.
