It's got to be precautionary at this point I'm sure. Has anyone heard any specifics about the injury?



per Rotoworld.com on 3/16

Ryan Braun was scratched from Sunday's lineup with right Achilles' tightness.

Braun has played just once in the last five days, with the Achilles' tendon problem getting him scratched twice. He remains day-to-day.

Even for very very minor injuries, managers bench their players in spring training in order to prevent them from aggravating the injury even more. It is just spring training and managers don't need their good players in anyway since the games dont even matter. So Braun is on the DL just to protect him from it becoming a serious injury when the regular season begins. I've heard of guys going on the DL during spring training for small bruises.
