Ryan Braun injury: Brewers OF could return as early as Thursday
Braun is on pace to return earlier than expected, as the outfielder had a better-than-expected batting practice session on Saturday. He has been on the DL since mid-June with an inflamed-nerve in his hand. He just needs his hitting sessions Monday and Tuesday to go well, and then he should be in the clear.
McCalvy notes that Braun could be ready earlier than Thursday, but that is it more convenient to make a move Thursday as opposed to earlier in the week. He will not play the full game, or the full series, but he is well enough to get back on the field and that is all the Brewers need to know about their superstar left fielder.
