Ryan Braun (hand) may be ready to be activated from the disabled list prior to the All-Star break.

MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy reports that the rehabbing outfielder went through a session of live batting practice Saturday afternoon at Milwaukee’s Miller Park for the first time since hitting the shelf and said later that his right hand felt “great.”

Braun has been on the disabled list since June 9 with an inflamed nerve. He will hit in the cages on Sunday and then take another round of live batting practice on Monday. If that all goes well, the 29-year-old should then be cleared to play in a couple of minor league rehab games. McCalvy suspects that Braun might rejoin the Brewers’ active roster on Thursday.

    Baseball needs to lighten up on steroids… Its just a plant.

    Screw The haters. Ryan Was accused of using steriods 2 years ago right? Okay so Braun goes out the year afterwards with everyone watching his every move and busts more than 35 hrs.

    There is only one player in baseball that has probably been more consistent than Ryan Braun when it comes to hitting and that might be MIggy.

    And watch Braun prove the haters wrong for the next 5-10 years .
