Ryan Braun expected to rejoin Brewers’ lineup Friday following birth of child

Sep 4, 2014, 6:29 PM EDT

Ryan Braun left the Brewers yesterday to be present for the birth of his first child and he will miss his second straight game tonight as his team begins an important four-game series against the first-place Cardinals. However, the Brewers announced late this afternoon that is well with the baby and Braun is expected to return tomorrow. Good news.

Braun, 30, is batting .275/.327/.480 with 18 home runs and 77 RBI over 114 games this year. Much like the Brewers, he has faded as the season has gone along, putting up a meager .208 batting average, four homers, and a .613 OPS over his last 32 games. He has been playing through a nerve problem in his right hand for almost the entire season, so a couple of days off could be beneficial for him.

    All those years worth of women’s fertility pills really paid off I see? He must be one proud mom.

    Bill Cosby: “Natural childbirth means that no drugs will be administered into the female’s body during the delivery. The father can have all he wants.”

    Gosh, if only there was some way he “revitalize” himself at the end of a long season….

    There has been no confirmation yet that the kid is his. Tests are pending. Sources tell me that Braun plans to dispute the DNA test and has scheduled a press conference address it.
