      Brewers' Ryan Braun: Behind schedule in recovery

      Braun said Sunday that he is behind schedule in his recovery from offseason back surgery, MLB.com reports. "I won't be 100 percent at the start of spring training, no," Braun said. "I think it will kind of be a gradual process to work my way back to 100 percent. But I feel pretty good. I don't foresee any reason that it wouldn't be [ready for Opening Day], but until I get out there and start doing things at full speed, it's hard to say." The 32-year-old estimated that he's about two weeks behind schedule, having just been cleared to resume swinging a bat a little over a week ago. Braun went under the knife days after the end of the regular season to repair a bulging disk in his lower back, an issue which kept him out for the final few weeks. On a positive note, Braun suggested his right thumb is no longer a concern, saying he is pain-free and has no plans to undergo another cryotherapy procedure.

      Brewers' Ryan Braun: Progressing well from back surgery

      Braun is progressing well from offseason back surgery, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I feel pretty good, knock on wood," Braun said Wednesday. "The only surprise is the rehab is a little longer than I was anticipating, just a couple months of rehab. Other than that, everything was as expected." Although the initial 3-to-4 week recovery timetable is out the window, Braun remains optimistic that his offseason program will not be impacted and he will be back at 100 percent for spring training. The 32-year-old is doing physical therapy four days a week for the back, and he said there are no plans at this point for him to undergo another cryotherapy procedure on his thumb. The five-year, $105 million extension Braun signed in 2011 kicks in this season.

      Brewers' Ryan Braun: Will need 3-4 weeks of rest following back surgery

      Braun will need 3-4 weeks to recover from offseason back surgery, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. This comes as no surprise considering the Brewers expected Braun to need at least a month of rest in order to heal from an offseason surgery on his back. New general manager David Stearns didn't anticipate any complications with Braun saying, "Our expectation is he'll be ready to go when we get to Maryvale (for spring training)."

      Brewers OF Ryan Braun headed for MRI; back surgery likely

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday and will likely have surgery Thursday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Braun didn't play in any of the final six games of the season, and it appears he's now set to undergo an offseason procedure that's expected to to need a month of recovery, but it shouldn't impact his availability for the beginning of the 2016 season.

      Brewers shut down OF Ryan Braun due to lingering back injury

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) was shut down by the Brewers on Sunday due to a lack of progress in his rehab, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Braun did get a start Saturday, but it was a rough outing where he went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. It's a safe move long-term for the Brewers, as they aren't going to allow a marquee player risk his 2016 season for a lost year. This will wrap up a strong season for the right fielder, in which he went .285/.356/.498 with 25 home runs and 24 steals. He's slated to undergo surgery on his back in the coming weeks.

      Brewers OF Ryan Braun starting Saturday against St. Louis

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has returned to action Saturday against St. Louis after losing seven games to a back injury. His pinch-hit appearance Friday night might have signaled his return. It's unclear how much he will play with little over a week left in the season, but his appearance in the lineup is still good news for Fantasy owners.

      Brewers OF Ryan Braun remains out Thursday

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is not in the lineup Thursday. Braun will now miss six straight games with a back injury. There hasn't been a set return date assigned as of yet and with five years left on his deal, it's fair to question if he will return at all this season.

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun remains sidelined Wednesday

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs. Wednesday marks the fifth straight absence for Braun, who revealed earlier in the week that he will need surgery in the offseason to address a back injury. A return this season for Braun is not being ruled out, but a target date has not been set, and it's fair to wonder how much he will play with less than two weeks left and five years remaining on his contract.

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun remains out Tuesday

      Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) is not in the lineup Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Make that four straight games out of the lineup for Braun, who has already determined he will have back surgery after the season. With the Brewers calling up six players from Double-A Biloxi this morning --- one of which an outfielder --- it might be fair to question whether we have seen the last of Braun this season. In the meantime, Domingo Santana will bat fifth in the order against the Cubs and get the start in right field.
