Brewers Injury Update: Ryan Braun cleared to swing

By on 10/08/2014 06:30:00 AM

Ryan Braun was not himself all season, but in a few days the Milwaukee Brewers may get an idea of whether he will be back to form in 2015.  Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Braun has been cleared to swing after Thursday's thumb procedure.
This season Braun struggled to return to elite form, hitting a career low .266 with just 19 home runs.  Not being able to get a great grip on the bat greatly hurt his ability to not only pull the baseball, but also to come through with big hits down the stretch.

While the procedure that was just completed has never been performed on a baseball player, if Braun is able to have a full recovery they will be adding an MVP caliber player back to their lineup.  This would help the team to greatly avoid another collapse like they suffered through in 2014.
