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

Ryan Braun (calf) hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Braun said before the game that he hoped his calf was well enough that he could play Friday, and he found his way into Thursday's game at a pivotal point in the sixth inning. He certainly seemed well enough, ripping a Junichi Tazawa offering over the left-center field wall for the three-run shot. It was also his 1,000th career RBI. Assuming no setbacks, Braun should be back in the lineup Friday. He's hitting .214/.250/.464 on the year.

Ryan Braun left Saturday's game against the Mets due to back tightness.

The back is among the parts of the body that have caused Braun issues in the past, so this isn't anything to immediately disregard as minor. That said, the injury wasn't something obvious -- he'd had a hit and a stolen base in the half-inning before exiting -- so there's reason to think it won't be too serious. We'll see what Braun and the team have to say after the game and in the next few days.
Apr 14 - 9:09 PM

Ryan Braun left Saturday's game against the Mets with an apparent injury.

Apparently it was an injury, rather, because nothing was apparent to those watching -- he was just there one minute, singling and stealing a base in the top of the fifth inning, and then he was gone, replaced by Hernan Perez in the bottom of the frame. The Brewers should have an update on Braun's status shortly.
Apr 14 - 8:47 PM

Ryan Braun is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Cardinals.
