  • Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters that Ryan Braun is day-to-day with tightness in his rib cage.
    Advice: Braun was substituted for in the fifth inning with the rib injury. Milwaukee has an off day on Thursday before taking on the Cardinals on Friday. It wouldn't be a shock if Braun missed a few games in that series, and a trip to the 10-day disabled list can't be ruled out yet, either.
  • Ryan Braun exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs with tightness in his rib cage.
    Advice: Braun was pinch hit for in the top of the fifth inning because of the rib injury. He'll likely undergo testing, and we should have a further update on his status after the completion of Wednesday's game.
  • Ryan Braun slugged two home runs and totaled four RBI in the Brewers' defeat of the Cubs on Tuesday.
    Advice: Braun went yard off Cubs starter Jose Quintana in both the top of the first inning and the top of the third, finishing the day 2-for-4. The veteran outfielder is now up to 14 home runs and 47 RBI in 90 games this season, to go along with a .255/.304/.466 batting line and nine stolen bases.
  • Ryan Braun went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's victory over the Braves.
    Advice: He plated Lorenzo Cain by singling in the first inning. He singled again in the eighth inning and came around to score on an Eric Kratz infield single. The aging outfielder also made one of the most spectacular diving catches you'll ever see in left field, which was a rather risky thing to do for the famously brittle 34-year-old. He's having by far the worst season of his career at the plate, toting a .249/.300/.442 line with 12 homers and 43 RBI in 88 games. He's stolen nine bases as well.
