The Milwaukee Brewers placed outfielder Ryan Braun on the 15-day disabled list on Friday because of a sore right thumb.
Braun had missed four games while resting the injury, and the Brewers were hoping he could return Friday. But things did not go well during batting practice, and it was decided he would go on the DL.
Braun, the 2011 National League MVP, is batting .304 with nine homers and 36 RBIs this season.
