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."

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.

Ryan Braun (thumb) has returned to the Brewers starting lineup for Friday night's contest against the Dodgers.

Braun was forced to sit out Thursday's game due to the nerve issue in his right thumb acting up again. It's something that is expected to bother him for the remainder of the season, which will force him to miss an occasional game here and there and may limit his power output.
Aug 15 - 7:00 PM

Ryan Braun acknowledged Thursday that the nerve issue in his right thumb is still bothering him.

It's a somewhat manageable injury, but Braun was held out of the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Cubs and could need more days off down the stretch. "There’s some thought that it could just eventually go away," Braun said Thursday morning. 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. ... It’s not like I can’t play. I obviously can play."

Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Braun and the Brewers were held in check by Clayton Kershaw most of the afternoon, but the right fielder came through with an RBI single in the first inning to give the Brewers an early lead. Braun hasn't had the same kind of production this season after last year's suspension, but he's hitting .285/.338/.496 and is sixth in the National League with 67 RBI after Sunday.

Ryan Braun hit two doubles and knocked in two runs in Friday's 7-4 win over the Cardinals.

Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

Braun hit one of the team's three solo home runs against Reds starter Homer Bailey on the evening. The blast was his 13th of the season, giving him 57 RBI and 50 runs scored. He's batting .304/.356/.534 with an OPS that's eighth-best in the National League. Assuming his nagging injuries don't play a major role, Braun should continue to be a nice fantasy contributor in the season's second half.

Ryan Braun singled and had a two-RBI triple in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He was fortunate to get his two-RBI triple in the third inning, as Colby Rasmus took a bad route and made an ill-timed jump before the ball went off his glove. Nevertheless, it was another nice day for Braun, who is now hitting .333 with a homer and 14 RBI over his last 14 games.
