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.

Updating an ongoing story, Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (hand) will take regular batting practice Friday, June 14. If it goes well, he may join the lineup tonight. If it goes poorly, the club will discuss a DL move.
Fantasy Tip: We could see a decision in the coming days. Stay tuned. If Braun has to miss time, Logan Schafer might sneak into deep-mixed relevance.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (hand) is not in the lineup Monday, June 10, while being replaced by Logan Schafer. He might sit out the entire series against the Miami Marlins, according to manager Ron Roenicke. Braun started feeling the injury to his right hand about a month ago after a swing. His thumb was originally numb for about a week, but he eventually got feeling back in it. However, he said there's an issue with a nerve and ligament in his hand, as well, located between his index finger and thumb.
The training staff hasn't been able to help curb the issue, but taking time off has helped. "We've tried all kinds of different treatments, then we tried different stuff in the batting glove and on the bat to try and relieve some of the pain," Braun said. He hasn't been able to drive the ball as effectively since the injury, despite tinkering with his swing and bat path. The team isn't ruling out a disabled list stay.
Fantasy Tip: This is looking direr by the day. While nothing can be confirmed, it's looking like an extended absence may be in his future. Start preparing for it, and if any single-year owner wants to take the chance on Braun, who already has Biogenesis hanging over his hand, maybe you should consider shipping him if someone is willing to pay close to his preseason price.
