Brewers' Ryan Braun 'cautiously optimistic' coming off thumb surgery
by Michael Hurcomb |

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is optimistic coming off October thumb surgery. Braun underwent a cryotherapy procedure in Los Angeles on Oct. 2, in which a needle was inserted at the base of his right thumb to essentially freeze a nerve.

"It definitely worked," Braun said Wednesday, per "It makes a huge difference."

Braun swung a bat 10 days after the procedure and was happy the pain in his thumb was gone.

"Right now, I don’t feel any [discomfort], and I haven’t been able to say that for two years," he said. "I think I’ve told you guys, it [bothered him] shaking hands, writing -- you know, just everyday activities. Now I don’t feel it at all, so I’m excited."

While Braun is definitely optimistic, he is also a bit cautious because he isn't in the grind of playing baseball every day. He has received full clearance, however, for all offseason activities.

"I’m encouraged by how it feels, but at the same time, I think I have to be cautiously optimistic [until] I get into spring training and see how it responds," Braun said. "But it hasn’t felt this good in a really long time."

OF Kyle Wren dispatched to Brewers from Braves
by Marty Gitlin |

The Brewers have swapped minor league pitcher Zach Quintana to the Braves for outfielder Kyle Wren.

The 20-year-old Quintana struggled at Class A Wisconsin last season with a 4-5 mark and 5.70 ERA that was the lowest in his three minor league seasons. He has struggled with his control, walking 139 in 194 2/3 innings over his career.

Wren, 24, has yet to advance past Class AA, but the son of recent Braves general manager Frank Wren managed a stat line of .290/.350/.365 at two levels in 2014.
