News: Braun (thumb) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Marlins. Impact: Absent from the lineup the last two days due to increased soreness in his right thumb, Braun will tough it out and play Thursday as the Brewers look to walk away with a split in the series against Miami. Braun is 4-for-10 with two doubles and a homer in his career against Thursday's starter, Nathan Eovaldi, but he's just 4-for-21 without an extra-base hit so far in September.(RotoWire, )

News: Braun (thumb) hit a solo home run in Thursday's 4-2 win over Miami. Impact: Braun had missed the last couple of games with soreness in his right thumb, but returned to launch his 19th homer of the season. Barring any setbacks, it should be OK to get him back in your lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Braun (thumb) is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday. Impact: It was reported Tuesday that his thumb has been bothering him more of late, and while he made a pinch-hit appearance and remained in Tuesday's game, it's not surprising to see the Brewers leave him out of the lineup after he saw two at-bats the previous night. Look for he and Gerardo Parra to share time in right field, at least in the short term. He'll likely be available again off the bench Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Braun's right thumb has been bothering him even more of late, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: Manager Ron Roenicke suggested the thumb discomfort that has hindered Braun's ability to grip a bat throughout the entire season has just recently spread to his hand, leading to his day off Tuesday. It does sound like Braun will continue playing through the issue, but he's batting just .230 since the All-Star break and it's uncertain how effective he'll be. Braun said he's discussed possible surgical options but none of the experts with whom he's consulted has provided enough of a guarantee that the problem would be corrected through surgery.(RotoWire, )

News: Braun is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins. Impact: Despite some lingering pain in his right thumb, Braun was able to tough it out and play in the final three games of the Cardinals series as well as the opener against Miami. The issue seems to be clearly inhibiting his abilities at the plate, however, as Braun's batting just .175 with one extra-base hit in his last 11 games. Manager Ron Roenicke will give him a day to rest up, slotting Gerardo Parra in right field in his absence.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Braun went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Marlins. Impact: Braun, who has been battling a lingering thumb injury, is in a 7-for-40 (.175) slump over the last 11 games. It's pretty clear that the slugger isn't right, but he keeps running out there every day for the struggling Brewers.(RotoWire, )

News: Braun is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cardinals, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports. Impact: A reason for Braun's absence hasn't been provided, but it sounds like the team will elaborate on the issue prior to the game. Gerardo Parra will take over for Braun in right field with Logan Schafer in center against right-hander Lance Lynn.(RotoWire, )

News: Originally out of the Milwaukee Brewers' starting lineup because of an ailing right thumb, Braun took batting practice and was inserted to play against St. Louis on Saturday. Impact: Braun missed two games this week for the birth of a daughter, then went 1 for 4 in Friday night's 6-2 win as Milwaukee stopped a nine-game losing streak.(STATS, 6:55pm)

News: Braun (thumb) was a late addition to Saturday's lineup, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports. Impact: Braun wasn't in the Brewers' original lineup, but manager Ron Roenicke decided to insert him after Braun made it through batting practice without issue. Reportedly, Braun's thumb has been sore for a few days, so though he'll start Saturday, he may not be 100 percent healthy.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Sep 6, 2014
News: Braun is currently out of the lineup Saturday due to a lingering thumb injury, but he will take batting practice and could be a late addition, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports. Impact: Apparently, Braun's thumb issue flared up again recently, prompting manager Ron Roenicke to exclude him from his lineup for Saturday. However, if Braun shows enough in batting practice, he could still be added late. If that happens, expect another update on his status.(RotoWire, )
