Brewers general manager David Stearns said Tuesday that he expects to get calls on Ryan Braun this winter.
Stearns wouldn't say much beyond that other than, "we'll see." There were reportedly talks with the Dodgers before the August 1 trade deadline which would have sent Braun to the Dodgers for Yasiel Puig, so they are clearly open to the possibility. Braun is owed $72 million through 2020 with a $20 million mutual option or $4 million buyout for 2021. The 32-year-old reached 30 homers for the first time since 2012 this year while batting .305/.365/.538 in 135 games. Oct 4 - 12:04 PM

Ryan Braun is getting the night off Tuesday.

Michael Reed will start in left field and bat eighth versus Rangers right-hander A.J. Griffin. This appears to be a routine day of rest for Braun, who's slashing .307/.368/.544 with 30 home runs and 90 RBI in 132 games this season. He also has 16 stolen bases and 78 runs scored.

Ryan Braun came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning on Friday, propelling the Brewers to a 5-4 victory over the Reds.

Braun also singled and stole a base in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been extremely productive when he's been on the field this season, slashing .307/.369/.545 with 30 homers, 90 RBI and 16 stolen bases in just 129 games. While he remains an injury-risk, he's still one of the top five-category contributors in fantasy leagues and should be drafted as such next spring.

Ryan Braun went ballistic in Saturday's win over the Cubs, providing three hits with two homers and five RBI.

It was a pretty eventful afternoon for Braun, who got Milwaukee on the board with an RBI single in the fourth. He followed that up by taking Jake Arrieta deep in the sixth before launching another shot off Carl Edwards in the eighth inning. For the season, Braun is hitting .308 with 30 round-trippers, 88 RBI and 15 steals. That’s top-10 production from a player who was supposed to be on the decline.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Brewers and Dodgers were "about 20 minutes" from swapping Ryan Braun and Yasiel Puig at the August 31 waiver trade deadline.

Nightengale says the teams simply "ran out of time" and are expected to revisit the blockbuster trade this offseason, with a strong likelihood that it gets completed. Braun has been excellent in his age-32 campaign, slashing .310/.372/.544 with 27 homers, 14 steals, 82 RBI, and 73 runs scored in 122 games for Milwaukee. He's under contract through 2020 at $17-20 million per year. Puig, 25, has batted .265/.329/.416 this season for the Dodgers, but we've seen better from him lately since his return from Triple-A Oklahoma City. He is under contract through 2018 for a total of about $18 million.
