As expected Ryan Braun is off the disabled list and back on Milwaukee’s active roster after missing the past two weeks with an oblique injury.

Braun is rejoining to the Brewers’ lineup without going on a minor-league rehab assignment first, although even last week the former MVP seemed very confident about being healthy enough to return when eligible to come off the DL.

Braun was off to a fantastic start before the injury, hitting .318 with six homers and a .952 OPS in 22 games. Milwaukee struggled to get right field production during his absence and went 6-8 without Braun.

    How awesome would it be if he used “The B*tch Is Back” for his walk up music?

      Almost as awesome as if Lance Armstrong used it as his intro music at a cancer benefit.

      Which is to say “not at all”. Unless you are the wife or child of the drug sample collector who got fired because of Braun’s outrageous lies. Then I’ll bet it would be just freaking awesome. They’d probably do their best Elton John impersonation.

        I don’t believe the collector was fired, but, in any case, this is baseball — not cancer. Dial it down.

    Ryan Braun is a Tool. Just ask Aaron Rodgers or anybody outside of Wisconsin.

    Sad that Fernandez is done, but great to get another superstar back.

    They play Pittsburgh, no need for a trip to the minors.

      Without “Roid Freak”, the Brewer’s are a minor league team themselves.

        It wasn’t “roids” nimrod. Just sayin’..

        Don’t hurt your neck looking so far up at that ‘minor league team’ that’s in first place in the division.

        Not to mention by 5.5 games
