    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun says his right thumb is back to 100 percent since surgery according to MLB.com.
    Insight: Braun had surgery to fix his inflamed nerve at the base of his thumb. He has already begun swinging and has not suffered a setback. Braun will remain a top pick in 2015 after hitting .266/.324/.453 with 19 home runs and 81 RBI this season.
     
    10/2/2014 5:32:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun underwent a procedure on his right thumb Thursday morning.
    Insight: It was a cryotherapy procedure, which freezes nerve tissue. Braun should be good to go for spring training.
     
    9/26/2014 4:23:00 PM
    Description: Consider this when deciding whether to keep Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun on your dynasty roster. Manage Ron Roenicke is considering moving him to first base.
    Insight: Milwaukee has three solid outfielders with Braun in Carlos Gomez, Khris Davis and Gerardo Parra, so it makes sense that one of them could move to first base. Milwaukee primarily used Mark Reynolds (.196, 22 HR) and Lyle Overbay (.237, 4 HR) at 1B this season.
     
    9/21/2014 10:00:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a career .385 (5-for-13) hitter against Pirates starter Vance Worley.
    Insight: Braun has two doubles and a RBI as well against Worley. The outfielder is 2-for-7 with a double in the series against the Pirates.
     
    9/10/2014 4:55:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.
    Insight: Braun's thumb was bothering him and he didn't start Monday either, but did pinch hit. He is hitting .272 with 18 home runs and 78 RBI on the season.
     
    9/6/2014 6:10:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was a late addition to the Brewers' starting linup on Saturday.
    Insight: Braun's thumb was bothering him prior to Saturday's game, but he made it through the pregame workout with no major issues. The Brewers need him in the next two games against the Cardinals. He is hitting .275 with 18 home runs and 77 RBI on the season.
     
    9/6/2014 4:55:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
    Insight: The outfielder returned to the lineup Friday after missing a couple of days for the birth of his daughter, but it was surprising not to see him out their in this important series against the division-leading Cardinals. Update: It's a right thumb that is bothering Braun.
     
    9/5/2014 10:25:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is expected to return for Friday's contest, according to the team's site
    Insight: Braun left the team Wednesday to join his family for the birth of his daughter. The outfielder will return to the lineup on Friday. He returns just in time for a huge four-game series against the division-leading Cardinals.
     
    9/5/2014 4:05:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has returned in time for Friday's contest.
    Insight: Braun left the team Wednesday to join his family for the birth of his daughter. He returns just in time for a huge four-game series against the division-leading Cardinals. Braun's numbers are the worst since he came to the major leagues in 2006, except for 2013 when he played only 61 games due to a suspension.
     
    9/4/2014 5:08:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will miss his second straight game due to the birth of his first child according to MLB.com.
    Insight: Braun left the team Wednesday to join his family. The outfielder will return to the lineup on Friday. Bad timing for the Brewers as they gear up to play a four-game series against the division leading Cardinals just days after falling out of first place for the first time since April 5.
     
    9/3/2014 12:18:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will miss at least Wednesday's game to be home for the birth of his first child.
    Insight: The Brewers start a huge four-game series with division-leading St. Louis and it would be a surprise if he didn't play for at least part of the series. This season, Braun is hitting .275 with 18 home runs and 77 RBI.
     
    8/30/2014 11:19:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a lifetime .182 hitter (2-for-11) against Giants starter Jake Peavy.
    Insight: Braun has just one hit in his last 12 at-bats. This season, Braun is hitting .277 with 17 home runs and 74 RBI.
     
    8/26/2014 6:30:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun left Monday's game with a bruised quad, but he's in the lineup Tuesday.
    Insight: Braun went 3-for-4 with a solo homer before leaving and has gone 10-for-26 with a double and two homers during a six-game hitting streak.
     
    8/26/2014 9:30:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun lashed out three hits including a home run, but left Monday's game with a bruised left quadriceps.
    Insight: Braun has a six-game hitting streak (10-for-26) to raise his average to .282 with 17 HR and 74 RBI. Nice totals for most players, but we expect more from the Brewers' slugger.
     
    8/23/2014 9:46:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has homered twice and driven in six runs in his last five games.
    Insight: Braun is only hitting .221 with five homers, 21 RBI and a .685 OPS since the All-Star break. Besides last season, when he only had 225 at-bats, he's never had less than 25 homers, 97 RBI or 91 runs in a season, but he's on pace for just 20 homers, 92 RBI, and 77 runs. The career .309 hitter is also batting .276, and his .811 OPS is 114 points lower than his career OPS.
     
    8/15/2014 7:10:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is in the lineup Friday after sitting out Thursday.
    Insight: Braun sat out due to his recurring thumb injury. His .279 average and .814 OPS are both career lows.
     
    8/14/2014 1:07:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is not in Thursday's starting lineup.
    Insight: Braun (.279, 14 HR, 67 RBI) went hitless in his last two games and could probably use the day of rest. This is not the Braun fantasy owners were expecting to get. His seven-year average heading into the season was .312 with 30 HR, 97 RBI, 19 SB and a .938 OPS.
     
    Hot8/5/2014 1:33:00 PM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a career .333 hitter against the Giants Tuesday starter Tim Lincecum. He's also 3-for-3 in stolen base attempts.
    Insight: Braun (.291, 14 HR, 65 RBI) had a nice series against the rival Cardinals as he produced five hits in 12 at-bats. He's not the superstar he once was, but he's still a solid fantasy asset.
     
    7/21/2014 11:13:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a career .311 hitter, but just a .100 hitter (2-for-20 with six strikeouts) against Reds right-hander Mat Latos.
    Insight: Braun (.298, 12 HR, 54 RBI) hasn't been able to match the production of his "Biogenesis Years," but he's still been productive this season. This matchup should obviously be avoided.
     
    7/10/2014 11:35:00 AM
    Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) is back in the lineup for Thursday's finale with Philadelphia.
    Insight: Braun (.291, 11 HR, 49 RBI) has been out of the starting lineup three of the past four games with a back injury. He's always hit Phillies pitching well (.396, 17 HR, 40 RBI, 1.174 OPS in 187 at-bats).
