Mar 25 Braun left Wednesday's spring training game after just two innings due to a setback to his intercostal strain, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports. "I'm fine," said Braun. "I continue to treat it. It's not 100% but I'm fine."
Recommendation: Braun said he didn't ask out of the game, but the coaching staff wanted him not to play after he said he wasn't at full strength. It sounds like Braun wanted to play even though he's not ready, which puts his status for Opening Day a bit in doubt. He played with the injury during the World Baseball Classic.
I passed on Sizemore to take Braun in my draft, now I'm nervous about that 1st round investment. It's in the same area as his injury last year. What should we expect? I know he's playing through it but maybe I shouldn't plan on Bill "glass is overflowing" James' predictions for the Hebrew Hammer.
