Ryan Braun likely to “miss much more than the minimum 15 days”

Ryan Braun played through a thumb injury for a long time before finally being placed on the disabled list this week and Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that it now “seems likely he’ll miss much more than the minimum 15 days.”

That makes the Brewers’ decision to let Braun remain on the active roster for so long seem even more questionable, although for the most part the former MVP remained productive with what the team is now calling an inflamed nerve in his right hand.

Because the disabled list stint was backdated Braun is eligible to return Monday, but that’s obviously not going to happen and missing the remainder of the first half sounds possible at this point.

    If only there was something Braun could take that would aid in his healing.

    The stock Getty Images snarling Ryan Braun pic that always accompanies bad news for Braun on this site is one of my favorite things about HBT.

    More about Biogenesis Ben Stiller/Keith Richards guy than his thumb.

    What do you expect when the guy that gets you the juice can’t get it for you anymore??

    It’s hard to stay healthy when you can’t take HGH! Cheater!
