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.

Did Ryan Braun just up his trade value?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Since Ryan Braun revealed over the weekend that he's still dealing with the same thumb injury that plagued him last season, curtailing his numbers before ultimately landing him on the DL, his trade value has plummeted. He's obviously still an asset. The potential rewards if he's able to overcome the injury are huge. But concerned owners seeking full value for him have gotten nothing but low-ball offers.

Hopefully, they stood pat. Braun's two home runs Monday went a long way to relieving everyone's concerns. Enough that no one will even consider the thumb when assessing his trade value? I wouldn't go that far, but maybe at least the discussion won't begin there.

And that's the more rational response, I think. The injury is a legitimate concern, but it shouldn't be the impetus for a trade. Again, it dates back to last year, which means it wasn't healed in spring training either, but it wasn't really an issue then. Braun said it flared up as he devoted more time to batting practice, which makes sense. Between altering his routine and maybe wearing some extra padding, he has a good chance of beating this thing.  

I'm not saying you can't shop him now hoping to free yourself of the worry, but especially now, you shouldn't accept a low-ball offer. I've moved Braun down in my rankings since the start of the season, but he's still a top 10 outfielder and should be traded as such.

Ryan Braun can't take normal swing
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is unable to take his normal swing, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Braun sat Saturday due to his sore thumb, and admitted he can't take a "normal swing" when he's in pain. "The challenging thing is when I can't take a normal swing," Braun said. "The first series I did; I took a lot of good swings, lined out quite a few times. [Friday], that wasn't the case."

Braun said he's optimistic that the club will figure out a way to alleviate some of his pain so that he can make it through the season. "I've tried lots of different things, different padding," he said "Hopefully, we'll figure something out, some type of treatment, something that eventually helps."

Braun is hoping to be in the lineup Sunday.

Ryan Braun hopes to play Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who is out of Saturday's lineup with persistent thumb issues, hopes to be available Sunday, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

"I'm optimistic," Braun said Saturday. "For the most part, it was there in spring training. It was better than it is now. But I didn't take BP much in spring training; I didn't hit a whole lot. That helped a little bit, so I won't hit today; I won't do anything today."

Braun's thumb injury has bothered him all winter, but he opted against surgery. "The only two surgeries that we knew of last year, neither of them were appealing," he said. "I rely on the advice of people that are much more knowledgeable about this stuff than I am. One (surgery) is I would never feel anything in my thumb again, which didn't make sense. The other is they would completely remove the nerve. That doesn't make sense, just long-term, living life. In the other one, there would still be nerve endings because they would remove the nerve but the nerve endings would still be there, which could be really painful. He said he didn't think that would be a great option either."

Braun will likely continue to battle thumb issues throughout the season.
