Ryan Braun is experiencing soreness in his shoulder, but should still debut this week

The soreness affects his hitting more than his throwing.

According to Adam McCalvy, Ryan Braun is dealing with soreness in his shoulder.

It sounds like the Brewers are not overly concerned, however. As is common knowledge amongst Brewer Nation, Braun believes he only needs a limited number swings to feel ready for the regular. As mentioned by McCalvy, Braun is still on schedule to see his first game action some time towards the end of this week.

Shoulder injuries that impact a player’s ability to hit can have lasting effects. Let’s hope that manager Craig Counsell’s lack of concern is good news.
