Fantasy Analysis | 1398121188
Ryan Braun a better buy than sell
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For over a week, it's sat in my inbox -- a trade offer from Fantasy Baseball Today partner in crime Adam Aizer. His Ryan Braun for my Carlos Gomez, straight-up.

In theory, it's a move I should make. I have Braun ahead of Gomez in my rest-of-season rankings, after all, and have repeatedly said I'd be more likely to buy him than sell him with all the uncertainty surrounding his thumb.

But it's not like I put Braun in a different stratosphere from Gomez. They're only two spots apart. And yeah, the thumb is worrisome. Seeing as I already have a good thing going in this particular league, I wouldn't want to sabotage myself with a glass cannon.

Of course, with Braun homering three times over the weekend, including twice in one game, I'm all the more tempted. Prior to that, all three of his home runs had come in the same game April 8, but for all the talk about how he had done nothing since then, he had actually hit .286 with three doubles and a triple in nine games. Yeah, he sat a couple times to manage the injury, but he seems to be managing it just fine, hitting .370 with six homers in his last 54 at-bats.

The key is whether or not that one awkward swing will put him on the DL, but even if he's a glass cannon, he's going out with a bang. Maybe Gomez isn't enough of a buy-low for me to pull the trigger, but if an owner in your league is desperate to move Braun, don't be afraid to make his day.

Ryan Braun connects for three home runs over the weekend
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

A day after producing his second multi-homer game of the season, Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun connected for his sixth home run Sunday at Pittsburgh. Braun tied the game at 2 in the ninth inning with a one-out solo home run off Pirates closer Jason Grilli.

Braun finished the 14-inning game 2 for 5 with one walk. He is batting .370 (20 for 54) with a .796 slugging percentage and 1.193 OPS in his last 13 games. He has one triple, three doubles, six home runs, 14 RBI and 15 runs in that span.

Ryan Braun slugs two home runs in win Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun went 3 for 5 with two home runs, three RBI and four runs in his team's 8-7 win over the Pirates Saturday.

Braun saved his best for last, following up a seventh-inning solo home run with a ninth-inning two-run shot to give his team a lead they wouldn't surrender. He has hit .292/.319/.600 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 65 at-bats.

Ryan Braun returns to lineup Thursday after day off
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun received one game off Wednesday to rest his ailing thumb, but is back in the lineup Thursday as his team plays in Pittsburgh.

Braun has struggled with the thumb, which in turn has limited his power this season. Aside from a three-homer, seven-RBI game in Philadelphia on April 8, he is batting .243 with no home runs and just three RBI.

Ryan Braun blasts three home runs in win Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun had a huge game Tuesday, going 3 for 5 with three home runs and seven RBI in his team's 10-4 win over the Phillies.

It was the second three-homer game of Braun's career. He had been struggling at the plate heading into Tuesday's game, going just 3 for 20 with no home runs, but he's on the board in a big way. Braun owns a .240/.269/.600 line in 25 at-bats.
