Ryan Braun (calf) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Braun only lasted four days before landing back on the DL. He's been struggling with calf issues on and off for the past month and appeared to aggravate his injury Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Left field duties will be shared between Hernan Perez, Nick Franklin and Eric Thames during his absence. More will be known on Braun's recovery timetable after he undergoes an MRI. The former MVP has been productive when healthy this year, hitting .262 with seven homers, 19 RBI and four steals over 30 appearances.

Ryan Braun left Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks with left calf tightness.

It's the same injury that put Braun on the disabled list earlier this month. Jesus Aguilar pinch-hit for Braun in the fourth inning and stayed in to play first base while Eric Thames shifted to left field. Braun fouled out in his only at-bat before exiting.
May 25 - 9:51 PM

Ryan Braun is out of the Brewers' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

Braun has gone 0-for-8 since returning May 21 from his left calf strain. Hernan Perez will start in left field and bat third on Wednesday versus Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman.
May 24 - 9:53 AM

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

He wound up missing just the minimum 10 days with a strained calf. Braun is in left field and batting third Sunday against Jake Arrieta and the Cubs.
May 21 - 11:49 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday that it's too soon to tell whether Ryan Braun (calf) will be ready for activation when first eligible on Sunday.

The skipper noted that Braun is progressing, and if he winds up missing his Sunday target it won't be by much. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined with a strained left calf and has also been dealing with a flexor strain in his right arm recently.
May 19 - 12:25 PM

Ryan Braun said he'll have an update on his strained left calf Saturday.

He's presumably going in for a follow-up exam with team doctors. Braun landed on the disabled list May 11 with what Brewers manager Craig Counsell termed a "minor" calf strain. If all goes according to plan, the veteran outfielder should be ready for activation before the end of the month.
May 18 - 1:34 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday on MLB Network Radio that Ryan Braun's left calf injury is "pretty minor."

The skipper added that Braun should be back in "close to 10 days." The veteran outfielder is also dealing with a flexor strain in his right arm, but it doesn't sound like that will make his stay on the disabled list any lengthier. It appears Braun's fantasy owners should get him back later this month.
May 12 - 4:29 PM

Brewers placed OF Ryan Braun on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 11, with a left calf strain.

Braun is also dealing with a flexor strain in his right arm in addition to his strained calf. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Hernan Perez figures to get the bulk of the playing time in left field while Braun is out. Nick Franklin and Eric Thames could also see some time in left, with Jesus Aguilar handling first base when Thames moves to the outfield.
May 12 - 2:35 PM

Ryan Braun (calf, forearm) is likely headed to the 10-day disabled list.

"I can’t really run or throw," Braun admitted after sitting out Thursday's game against the Red Sox. "Hopefully, if I get a little bit of down time I’ll be able to get back to full strength." Braun was already dealing with a flexor strain when he left Wednesday's game with strained calf. The Brewers are expected to make an announcement on his status Friday and we're guessing he'll be placed on the disabled list. The former MVP has produced when healthy this year, batting .287 with seven homers, 18 RBI and four steals across 27 appearances.
May 11 - 5:51 PM

Ryan Braun (calf) is absent from the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon.

No surprise after he made an early exit Wednesday night with tightness in his left calf. Braun is considered day-to-day for now. Hernan Perez will start in left field and bat third in Thursday's series finale against the visiting Red Sox.
May 11 - 10:28 AM

Ryan Braun was pinch-run for in the fifth inning due to left calf tightness.

Braun singled in the fifth, after which he was replaced on the bases by Jonathan Villar. The veteran outfielder's health has proven somewhat tenuous of late, as prior to Wednesday's bout of calf tightness, he had been dealing with a slight flexor strain of the right forearm. Braun should be considered day-to-day moving forward and will be reevaluated on Thursday.
May 10 - 10:25 PM

Ryan Braun (forearm) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Braun missed a week of action with a slight flexor strain in his right forearm. He is starting in left field and batting third Tuesday versus Red Sox left-hander Drew Pomeranz.
May 9 - 4:13 PM

Ryan Braun (forearm) is not in the Brewers' lineup Saturday against the Pirates but will be available off the bench.

Braun's MRI showed a slight flexor strain in his right forearm. He seems to be making progress and expects to be back in the lineup by Tuesday. In the meantime, Braun will be limited to pinch-hitting. Nick Franklin is starting in left field and batting seventh Saturday against Bucs right-hander Gerrit Cole.
May 6 - 5:51 PM

Ryan Braun (trapezius) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun actually went back to Milwaukee to have his arm/elbow re-evaluated, but everything came back clean and he'll rejoin the team Saturday. The Brewers have Hernan Perez in left field and Nick Franklin in right field, as Domingo Santana is getting a day off.
