Brewers | Elian Herrera proving useful

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:52:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers INF-OF Elian Herrera was supposed to be a paternity list fill-in for 1B Lyle Overbay, but then OF Logan Schafer (hamstring) hit the 15-day disabled list. Now, OF Carlos Gomez and C Martin Maldonado face potential suspensions, meaning Herrera stands to see time as the team's starting center fielder and emergency catcher. "If suspensions come down, the catching part is going to be big. Center (field) is big, too. We don't have anybody else who can play center. (OF Ryan Braun) is really our backup center fielder if we don't have Gomez or Herrera here," manager Ron Roenicke said.

Brewers | Ryan Braun still bothered by thumb

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:51:21 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (thumb) is still being bothered by his ailing right thumb, which is why he was held out Wednesday, April 16. He's hitting .269 with three home runs and 10 RBIs, but his homers and seven of his RBIs came in one day on April 8.

Fantasy Tip: This is something you'll need to keep an eye on. Braun started slow, minus the breakout game against the Phillies. He may need to continue to be rested in the near future to avoid making his thumb worse.

Brewers | Ryan Braun trying to avoid thumb surgery

Sun, 06 Apr 2014 11:41:36 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (thumb) revealed that he decided not to undergo surgery on his right thumb during his 65-game suspension last season because both options available at the time had major drawbacks. One surgery would have completely removed the nerve in his thumb, meaning it would have felt numb for the rest of his life, while the other surgery would have removed the nerve but kept some of the nerve endings, which could have been very painful. A third option became available this spring, according to Dr. Don Sheridan, but it's something that hasn't been done very often. It is uncertain how much time Braun would miss if he decides to proceed with surgery.

Brewers | Ryan Braun's thumb bothering him

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 08:33:16 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (thumb) is being bothered by the right thumb that gave him issues last summer.

Fantasy Tip: This could be bad. Regardless of whatever steroids timeline you want to believe with him, any problem with the hand will affect his hitting, notably his power. The injury clearly affected his ability last year and could linger throughout the season. He's in the lineup today at DH, but his owners should be looking to make plans to replace him in case he has to miss time. Even if he doesn't, he may not be his elite self for much of the year.
