Does anyone have any recent news about Braun? Last I heard was
he was shut down last year in July due to elbow problems... with
nothing since:

I have him on one of my team's farm rosters. I was trying to decide
if I should hold on to him or drop him and go with someone who's
closer to the Bigs.

From BrewerFan. net
08 Braun, Ryan A+ 3B 22 R R
The chances of Braun seeing A-ball again are pretty slim, though the Brewers might feel less of a need to push him now that Koskie will be at third base with the big team for a few years


From Inside the Dugout
2-Ryan Braun, 3B, R/R, 6’2/205, DOB: 11/17/83
The 4th overall pick in this past year’s draft, Ryan Braun could move through the Brewers system quickly due to his polished bat, showing good power to all fields in his first taste of proball. However as with many power hitters,scouts are already questioning whether he will stick at third. Milwaukee will start him there, but with his strong arm, a future in the outfield is not out of the question. After signing, Braun had 190 AB’s between rookie ball and low A, putting up impressive numbers but Milwaukee shut him down early due to a sore elbow. He should start next season at High A Brevard County.


8th best prospect in the farm system on one and 2nd in the other. Probably a late 2007 callup IMO.

He's a masher and makes good contact. Excellent approach at the plate. Nobody currently on the Brewers will hold him back when he is ready. 2007 sounds right.

Thank you both for your comments. I think I'll hold firm
despite his injury. We'll see what High-A brings.
