View Full Version : Braun Could Be Back This Weekend

Ryan Braun experienced a "modest breakthrough" on Wednesday, and he hopes to return this weekend against the Dodgers.

He's been out with strained muscles in the back of his ribcage since Saturday. "It's definitely a lot better today," Braun said Wednesday. "This is the first day I've felt significant progress." It appears he'll be able to avoid a trip to the DL.

Thanks, that is very good news. We could definitely use him in the Dodgers series

I guess Yost said if this was the playoffs Braun would be in there. Hopefully his ribs continue to get better. This could be a blessing in disguise, he's definitely going to be very well rested when he comes back, just in time to finish the season out strong.

Yeah, there was no better time for him to go down than this trip against last place teams. Bring him back for the tough games well rested...it couldn't have happened any better :)

Great news, can't wait to get him back. The Dodgers are a much different team then the Nats or the Padres.
