Brewers' Ryan Braun: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun will make his spring debut Friday against the Diamondbacks.

The Brewers have taken it easy with Braun this spring in an effort to keep him fresh for the regular season, but he will finally get into a game for the first time. Braun will serve as the Brewers' designated hitter Friday and hit third in the batting order.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: To make spring debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is expected to make his Cactus League debut Friday against Arizona, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Braun hasn't played more than 140 games in a season since 2012, so the Brewers have avoided overworking him this spring. He should still have plenty of time to get up to speed by Opening Day, at which point he'll have something close to an everyday role for as long as he remains healthy.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: First base role diminishes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is expected to see minimal time at first base for the Brewers in 2019, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Braun worked in spring training at first base last year to help the Brewers fully utilize their outfield depth, but the emergence of Jesus Aguilar ended up limiting Braun's exposure at the position in 2018, so this comes as no surprise. The offseason trades of Domingo Santana and Keon Broxton only further entrenched Braun, Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich as Milwaukee's outfield starters for 2019, with Ben Gamel -- acquired in the Santana trade -- set to serve as the fourth outfielder. The 35-year-old is coming off a 125-game campaign in which he slashed .254/.313/.469 with 20 home runs, as he now looks to re-tap into his power this offseason by raising his launch angle.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Looking to raise launch angle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun said Sunday that he's worked with a private coach this winter to make changes to his swing in order to tap into more power, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Even in his age-34 season, Braun still hit the ball with authority (43.0 percent), but it didn't translate to as much over-the-fence power (20 home runs in 444 plate appearances) as compared to years past. In fact, Braun has posted the four worst flyball rates of his career in the past four seasons, with the Brewers' longtime franchise player instead spraying more grounders and flyballs around the yard. Adjusting his launch angle could help Braun recover some of the home-run output he's lost in recent seasons, but simply avoiding the disabled list would probably prove more consequential to his overall fantasy value. He hasn't played in more than 140 games in any season since 2012.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Tallies five hits in NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 2-for-4 in the Brewers' series-clinching victory over the Rockies on Sunday.

Braun had a nice series at the plate against the Rockies, going 5-for-13 (.385) over three games. With that performance coming on the heels of the .991 OPS he posted in September, expect Braun to remain a fixture in the middle of the Brewers' batting order the rest of the way.
