Ryan Braun placed on disabled list with strained oblique

Bill Baer wrote last night that Ryan Braun could be placed on the disabled list due to his strained right oblique and that’s exactly what the Brewers did this morning. Logan Schafer, who has been sidelined since mid-April with a hamstring strain, has been activated to take his place on the active roster.

Braun’s stint on the disabled list has been backdated to April 27, the day after his last game action, so he’ll be eligible to return on May 12 if all goes well. Oblique injuries are tricky, so that’s obviously far from a guarantee.

Braun, who has been playing through a nagging thumb injury, is batting .318/.361/.591 with six home runs and 18 RBI in 22 games this season.

    he will be on dl most of the year, with no juice help.

      agree – most of the juice is for recovery time. He will be walking like a cripple by midseason. I only laugh at the player association because he was taking someone elses job.

    Hands down … Willie Mays will always be the greatest 5 tool player who ever lived

      ALWAYS?

      Using words like always, never, all etc… is not usually a good idea…

      If not Mike Trout, then someone else… and then someone else after that…

      What about in the year 2114 or 2182?

      There is a LOT of baseball to be played yet LONG after you and I are dead…

      Let’s just say the Say Hey Kid was the best of his era…

    Too bad there isn’t some kind of injectable drug or hormone that could help the poor man recovery more easily…

    Good.

    Jeebus, you kids are predictable. It would be different if any one of you could actually come up with something new and/or even mildly entertaining, but clearly you cannot. It’s always the same. Lame.

    • apkyletexas - May 3, 2014 at 8:26 PM

      Your screen name is moronic.

      • rednuthatch - May 3, 2014 at 9:45 PM

        And yours is better? ;)

      • The Almighty Cabbage - May 4, 2014 at 7:26 AM

        Gee, that hurt.

    • stercuilus65 - May 3, 2014 at 11:57 PM

      Quit crying bitch.

      • The Almighty Cabbage - May 4, 2014 at 7:31 AM

        I’m not crying. I’m just pointing out that while you kids may think you’re clever, you just aren’t. Not even a little bit. It’s the same weak, boring comments over and over and over.

        And don’t go all “Internet tough guy” with me. My keyboard can beat up your keyboard.

        And The Almighty Cabbage wins by a knockout!! Well done.

    The whole juice thing is already old I agree. Let it go. Like many others already have

    • apkyletexas - May 3, 2014 at 8:29 PM

      Yeah, it’s not like he won an MVP while juicing and then ruined a dude’s career for no reason when he got caught.

      You know what – if Braun doesn’t like it, he should just retire and go enjoy his undeserved millions. I’ve got zero sympathy for him. And I’m tired of his bug eyes – they creep me out.

      • rednuthatch - May 3, 2014 at 9:43 PM

        “And I’m tired of his bug eyes – they creep me out.”

        Then stop looking at his picture…. LOL

    Is it just me or do Braun and Roids both have five letters, two vowels and three consonants?

    • bchsom16 - May 3, 2014 at 4:35 PM

      Many five letter words have two vowels and three consonants……..

      • bbk1000 - May 3, 2014 at 5:23 PM

        So the answer is yes…..thanks much.

    • grnngold - May 4, 2014 at 8:56 AM

      Yes they do, now you can go out for recess.

  8. bchsom16 - May 3, 2014 at 7:50 PM

    @bbk1000…..”great” also works, so does “power” and “speed” so you are welcome.
    Those describe Braun too. The steroid comments are getting so old from everyone. Give it a rest.

    • bbk1000 - May 3, 2014 at 9:13 PM

      “speed” only has one vowel….and a couple of quotation marks…..

      Braun is what he is….a liar and a steroid user, I can’t change that.

      The lies is what keeps this alive….he used and he lied….he appeared to throw everybody under the
      bus in doing so……he’s not a good guy.

      Have a good evening…..

      • bchsom16 - May 3, 2014 at 9:52 PM

        People who can’t let it go keep it alive.

    This could hurt his chances for MVP!
