Ailing Cain, Braun make Brewers’ 25-man wild-card roster
Cain exited the Brewers’ loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday with a sprained ankle following a collision at home plate. Braun missed the final two games of the regular season with a calf strain, but was optimistic that he’d be available for the postseason.
The Brewers’ roster features 10 pitchers and a few notable omissions: Zach Davies, Gio Gonzalez and Jimmy Nelson, all of whom pitched during Milwaukee’s three-game series with Colorado over the weekend.
Davies started Friday, while Gonzalez pitched Saturday and Nelson pitched Sunday.
