Update: Braun (thumb) will likely remain sidelined at least through the All-Star break, even with recent news of good progress, the Brewers' official site reports. "The date he said we should target is pretty far in the future," Braun said. "I certainly hope that I'm back before that date, but a nerve is unlike a muscle or a bone or a tendon or a ligament where there is a specific amount of time, where you know what you're dealing with. There's not a whole lot you can do except rest."
Recommendation: Braun pointed out teammate Corey Hart's news as a reason to not give too specific of a target date for his return.
