Braun back this weekend?
By Doug Mittler
Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, on the disabled list since June 14 because of an inflamed nerve between his right thumb and forefinger, will take batting practice Monday and Tuesday and could be activated from the disabled list in time for a weekend series in Arizona.
MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy says Thursday would be a "convenient" day for the Brewers to make a roster move regarding Braun. Rookie right-hander Johnny Hellweg is slated to start against the Reds on Wednesday and could be demoted after that outing.
