Ryan Braun, who’s spent the past month on the sidelines with a thumb injury, is back in the Brewers’ lineup tonight against the Reds.

Braun played through the injury for quite a while before the Brewers finally decided to shut him down in early June. Milwaukee’s lineup still isn’t close to full strength, however, as Aramis Ramirez basically took Braun’s spot on the disabled list with a left knee injury.

Despite playing through pain for much of the season Braun hit .309 with nine homers and an .890 OPS in 57 games before the DL stint, including seven hits in his last 17 at-bats.

    He’s actually being dropped off at the stadium in a Fed Ex truck- weird.

      If the seal is broken, will they still let him play or will the Red’s play the game under protest?

    I get people still give him crap for the test and then hun winning the decision. but can’t we all act like adults and move on. the guy is a great baseball player and has been like this for years now. he’s numbers are almost always similar and even injured he plays better then most. He has strong talent and us as baseball fans should enjoy it. And before you jump on “well your a Yankee fan A-roid lover” please we all heard enough of that. Take Ryan’s case as a solo. and move on from these anoying repetitive zingers.
