Brewers | Ryan Braun behind schedule

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 12:39:19 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is behind schedule in his recovery from back surgery and will not be 100% when spring training begins. Braun said he hopes to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Braun likely will take things slow during spring training but has time to prepare for opening day. He is coming off a solid 2015 where he hit .285 with 25 home runs and 84 RBI. Braun probably will be selected in one of the earlier rounds of drafts this season.

Brewers | MIL being cautious with Ryan Braun

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 10:29:47 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell said OF Ryan Braun (back) will be eased back into action during spring training, even though he has not experienced any setbacks since undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disc in his lower back.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old Braun hit .285 with 25 home runs, 84 RBIs and 24 stolen bases in 140 games last season. He should be viewed as a low-end OF1 or high-end OF2 in traditional fantasy leagues, although he carries injury risks.

Brewers | Ryan Braun not generating interest

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 10:28:14 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not generating much trade interest this offseason to this point.

Fantasy Tip: It's all about health with Braun now at age 32. He still has the potential to steal 30 bases in a full season, and the fact he put up 24 stolen bases last year was a good sign. Braun is a low-end first outfielder and top-tier second fly catcher with injury risks for fantasy owners.

Brewers | Ryan Braun progressing

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 07:52:24 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) said Wednesday, Nov. 25, his rehabilitation from back surgery is taking a little longer than expected, but he is progressing. He said he is doing physical therapy four days a week, and he expects to be ready for spring training. "I never do any baseball stuff this early in the offseason," Braun said. "I usually start throwing in about a month and I usually don't start hitting until January. Spring training is long enough for position players so I usually wait until the beginning of the year to start swinging the bat. It shouldn't have much impact on my offseason program at all other than doing a few more rehab exercises. A couple of things I used to do workout-wise I probably won't do any more."

Fantasy Tip: Braun just turned 32 and is coming off a .285-25-84 season with 24 steals, which was the most he has swiped since 2012. His days of .319-41-112 are likely over, but he's still a high-end second outfielder in traditional leagues.

Brewers | Ryan Braun still resting

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 10:29:19 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is still in the three- to four-week period of rest following his back surgery, but new general manager David Stearns said Braun is expected to be ready for spring training next year.

Fantasy Tip: Braun played well in 2015 with 25 home runs and 84 RBI in 140 games, but nagging injuries continued to plague him throughout the year, and the back surgery immediately following the season will have owners hesitant to classify him as a top-tier outfielder again in 2016. Know that you're assuming plenty of risk with Braun if you select him in the early rounds.

Brewers | Ryan Braun undergoes back procedure

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 12:26:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) underwent successful lower back surgery, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Braun had a bounce-back season in 2015, as he tipped the scales in all standard categories with a .285/.356/.498 slash line, 87 runs, 25 home runs, 84 RBI and 24 stolen bases. His late season injury problems might keep his draft stock down a touch entering the 2016 season, but Braun should be viewed as a No. 1 outfield option worth targeting as soon as the second round of drafts.

Brewers | No Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 08:28:22 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) and C Jonathan Lucroy are not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Brewers draw Cardinals SP John Lackey ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) who has 25 strikeouts over his past 21 innings and owns a 2.18 ERA through his last 19 starts. It isn't a good spot to start any Milwaukee bats at FantasyScore Sunday.
