Ryan Braun went 3-for-3 with a home run, a stolen base, four RBI and three runs scored in a wild 9-8 win over the Phillies on Saturday.
He laced a two-run double in the third inning, and topped that with a two-run bomb off starter Jeremy Hellickson in the fifth. In the seventh inning he walked, stole second base and scored as the Phillies made two errors on the play. Braun is always nursing multiple injuries and misses a lot of games but is one of the most productive players in the game when he is on the field. He is slashing .271/.353/.560 with 12 homers, 31 RBI and six stolen bases in only 47 games. Jul 22 - 11:45 PM

Ryan Braun (calf, wrist) said Friday that he expects to return to the Brewers' lineup Saturday.

Braun also revealed that he's dealt with a sore right wrist all season and he received a cortisone shot before the All-Star break. The veteran outfielder is also still battling a nagging left calf injury.

Ryan Braun (calf, wrist) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.

It's the third straight missed start for Braun, who is battling a nagging left calf issue in addition to a sore wrist. Hernan Perez is in left field. The Brewers also have Brett Phillips in center field over Keon Broxton. Daily Slant: He may go overlooked given the dearth of suitable pitching options on tonight's slate, but Aaron Nola absolutely deserves a look as a GPP play as a home favorite against the Brewers. If Nola can keep the two potent lefties - Thames and Shaw - at bay, he'll have a great shot at a dominating performance. He's struck out at least six in every start he's made since the end of May, and owns a 10.1 K/9 rate against RH bats on the year. The Brewers have the third highest K% against RHP in the league.

Ryan Braun (calf, wrist) remains out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

It's the second straight absence for Braun, who's battling some calf and wrist soreness. These aren't new ailments. Hernan Perez will start in left field and bat fifth versus Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon.
Jul 20 - 9:51 AM

Ryan Braun (calf) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

Braun is fighting through some calf and wrist soreness, hence why the Brewers are giving him the day off. There is no new injury concern -- the team is simply trying to toss him a day off here and there to keep him fresh. Eric Thames will patrol left field in his place and is hitting second.
Jul 19 - 6:03 PM

Ryan Braun (calf) slugged a grand slam in the Brewers’ 9-6 victory over the Phillies on Friday.

It was the big blow in an eight-run second inning against Nick Pivetta. Braun now has six career grand slams, the most in Brewers history. The 33-year-old sat out the final game before the All-Star break after aggravating his left calf injury, but the extended break apparently did the trick for him.
Jul 15 - 2:13 AM

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

Braun re-injured his left calf last Saturday but made enough improvement over the All-Star break that he's ready to give it a go. He's in left field and batting third against Nick Pivetta and the Phillies.
Jul 14 - 4:45 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that he's optimistic Ryan Braun (calf) will be ready to play at the start of the second half on Friday.

Braun was pulled from Saturday's game with tightness in his left calf and is sitting out on Sunday. It's the same calf that's sent him to the disabled list twice this season, but evidently the ailment isn't as bad this time around. We'll have to see how he recovers over the break.
Jul 9 - 11:48 AM

Ryan Braun (calf) is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Braun exited Saturday's game with tightness in his left calf. The Brewers seem to think it's a day-to-day situation, but it's the same calf that's sent Braun to the disabled list twice this season so it certainly bears watching. The hope, obviously, is that he'll be OK after resting over the All-Star break. Milwaukee has Hernan Perez in left field and Jesus Aguilar in the designated hitter spot Sunday.
Jul 9 - 10:09 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Ryan Braun (calf) was dealing with a cramp on Saturday.

Braun lobbied to stay in the game but Counsell decided to play it safe by giving him the rest of the afternoon off. It doesn't sound like anything serious but with the All-Star break coming up, Braun will probably ride the pine Sunday against the Yankees.
Jul 8 - 7:38 PM

Ryan Braun was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Yankees due to tightness in his left calf.

It's a recurrence of the same issue that sidelined him for much of the past two months. He'll likely sit out on Sunday as well, and through the All-Star break, before the team determines if a return trip to the disabled list will be necessary.
Jul 8 - 3:40 PM

Ryan Braun slugged a two-run homer and reached base four times in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

Braun's blast in the third inning got a seven-run third inning started for the Brewers. He actually reached base twice in the frame, drawing a walk in his second trip to the plate. Braun was pulled later in the game with the Brew Crew up big. The slugger has a hit in all eight games since returning from the disabled list and has gone deep three times.
Jul 6 - 5:52 PM

Ryan Braun is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Orioles.

He's presumably getting a breather. Hernan Perez will get a start in the outfield in his place.
Jul 4 - 12:46 PM

Ryan Braun went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Reds on Thursday.

Braun waited on a Homer Bailey hanging curve and deposited it into the left field seats, the first of six homers and 11 total runs the Brewers would put up before the end of the night. The homer was the second in as many games for Braun, who only just came off the disabled list on June 27. In three games he's 4-for-14, and overall Braun has nine homers, 21 RBI and 23 runs scored to go with a .265/.344/.556 line in 33 games.
Jun 30 - 12:26 AM

Brewers activated OF Ryan Braun from the 10-day disabled list.

Braun, who has been out for a month with a calf strain, went 2-for-8 with a homer during a brief minor league rehab stint with Class A Wisconsin. The 33-year-old returns to a .262/.350/.524 batting line with seven home runs and 19 RBI over 30 games.
