BRAUN IS UP!

San Diego - With third base turning into a black hole offensively in a lineup struggling in general to score runs, the Brewers could wait no longer to call up Ryan Braun.

The Brewers announced late tonight the 23-year-old Braun, their top everyday prospect in the minor leagues, was coming up from Class AAA Nashville. Club officials waited until after Braun played in the Sounds' game against Memphis in Nashville because they wanted him to get more at-bats after spending time recently on the disabled list.

Braun is expected to join the Brewers in time to be in the lineup Friday night against San Diego at Petco Park.

To make room on their roster for Braun, the Brewers placed reliever Elmer Dessens on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.
