According to Adam McCalvy, Ryan Braun is dealing with soreness in his shoulder.
Ryan Braun has been dealing with a sore shoulder, Craig Counsell said, but is still on track to debut as scheduled at the end of this week. It doesn’t affect him throwing, only hitting, per CC.— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) March 3, 2020
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.
