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.

Brewers | Ron Roenicke explains closer switch

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 15:44:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said the team wants to give RP Jim Henderson some time to get right before putting him in ninth-inning closing situations. "It's velocity but it's also command and life on a pitch," Roenicke said of what was missing from Henderson, who converted 28 of 32 saves in his first season as closer in 2013. "When you see hitters with him, he does have deception. When he's going at people the right way, they're always late on the ball. They're not getting good swings." Henderson had a 6.00 ERA in nine spring outings with nine hits and five walks in nine innings.

Fantasy Tip: You'll need to hang onto Henderson and hope he can turn things around quickly. If he can't Francisco Rodriguez should continue in the closer role, assuming he doesn't blow up. Run to the waiver wire and scoop up K-Rod.
