Brewers Ryan Braun Placed On DL

PEDs NewsThe Milwaukee Brewers put outfielder Ryan Braun on the 15 day disabled list following a 4-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Braun had missed the last four games with a sore right thumb and attempted a batting practice session that did not go well.

The Brewers are hopeful Braun will be able to return as soon as he is eligible.

It was then that the decision was made  to place Braun on the disabled list.

Braun is batting .304 with nine homers and 36 RBIs. He won the NL’s Most Valuable Player award in 2011 and finished second to San Francisco’s Buster Posey last year.  This will be Brauns first stint  on the disabled list in his seven-year career

“He went out and swung today, took batting practice and the soreness is still there,” manager Ron Roenicke said. “This is a move we tried to avoid. After talking to him, I think this is the right way to go.”

Caleb Gindel will replace Braun on the roster. Gindel is hitting .274/.341/.456 with Triple-A Nashville this season.
