Ryan Braun indicated that he'd be open to moving to first base in a radio interview with WTMJ-AM this week.
It's probably not something the Brewers will discuss this winter, though it could be a possibility come 2019. It also might become a factor if Braun's name comes up in trade talks again. He was rumored to be going to the Dodgers in Aug. 2016, and there was again some speculation there in the spring. Braun now has full no-trade protection, and while he still might be willing to go to the Dodgers, it doesn't appear that he's interested in playing anywhere else. Oct 19 - 5:02 PM

Ryan Braun indicated Sunday that he was battling some health issues during his late-season struggles.

Braun, who hit just .223/.282/.388 over his final 38 games, mentioned a wrist ailment as one injury he was dealing with. He made a couple trips to the disabled list in the first half with calf injuries, and it sounds like some other maladies probably would've sent him to the DL after the All-Star break if the Brewers weren't battling for a playoff spot. Of course, injuries are nothing new with Braun, as he hasn't played a full season since 2012. He'll turn 34 in November, so it seems unlikely that his health problems will go away. Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Ryan Braun went 2-for-3 and hit his 17th homer against the Pirates on Monday.

Braun has picked it up some this month, batting .294 with four homers, four steals and 12 runs scored in 15 games. He's most likely going to finish with the second lowest OPS+ of his career, but he remains an asset when he's in the lineup.

Braun and Travis Shaw went back-to-back in the sixth inning, and the outfielder added an RBI double in the ninth as well. The homer was the 16th in 91 games for Braun this year. Injuries have played a part, but when on the field, the 33-year-old has remained one of the game's most dynamic offensive weapons. Through Saturday, Braun is hitting .272/.341/.498 with his 16 homers, 48 RBI, 52 runs scored and 11 steals.
