CINCINNATI (AP) — The Brewers put outfielder Ryan Braun on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique in his right side on Saturday before the second game of their series against the Cincinnati Reds.
Braun had missed the last six games because of the injury. Since he hasn’t played, the move was made retroactive to April 27 and he will be eligible to return on May 12.
Milwaukee activated outfielder Logan Schafer off the disabled list. He’d been sidelined by a strained right hamstring.
Braun went on the disabled list for the first time in his career last season, sidelined from June 14 to July 7 with an injured right thumb. He accepted a 65-game suspension on July 22 for violations of Major League Baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract.
