Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun exited Saturday’s game against the Reds in the second inning due to back spasms,’s Adam McCalvy reports. Braun struck out in his only at-bat. Logan Schafer replaced him in right field to begin the bottom of the second. Braun is considered day-to-day at the moment.

It’s been an injury-plagued season for Braun, as he has been battling an inflamed nerve in his right thumb all season and he went on the 15-day disabled list at the end of April with an oblique injury. Nevertheless, he has still managed to be productive, slashing .289/.341/.509 with 11 home runs, 49 RBI, and eight stolen bases.

      Unfortunately for you, the guy still plays ball effectively and has money.

      As opposed to you, a message board poster who thinks he’s Batman.

      Tell me again how sane you are.
