Brewers | Ryan Braun likely to hit DL

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (hand) appears bound for the disabled list after experiencing more sharp pain in his right hand during batting practice Friday, June 14. It was the first time he had swung in days as he tried to rest what he described as an inflamed nerve between his right thumb and index finger. On one of the first swings he took, he grimaced. "More of the same," Braun said he felt. "It basically has been the same for a while. Everything we have tried to get to the point where I can take a regular swing has not helped. We've tried different wraps on the bat, different padding on the batting gloves. We've basically tried everything we can think of."

Fantasy Tip: If they indeed disable him, Logan Schafer would net regular at-bats and could be a desperation deep-mixed option for five-outfielder leagues. He's more suitable for single-universe formats, though. Of course, with Braun's Biogenesis fate potentially coming down this season, Schafer could have more time than expected, though that might be a long shot, and Corey Hart may return next month, as well.
