Braun (calf) was activated from the disabled list ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Braun is back with the Brewers after completing a three-game rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin. The 33-year-old should immediately return to an everyday role in the Brewers' outfield, ultimately pushing Hernan Perez back into a super-utility role.

Braun (calf) completed a three-game rehab stint with Low-A Wisconsin on Sunday and he's expected to rejoin the Brewers on Monday and return from the disabled list Tuesday in Cincinnati, the Appleton Post-Crescent reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun went 2-for-8 with a homer over three games, and appears to have made it through the increased workload unscathed. The return of Braun will squeeze Hernan Perez back into a super utility role.

Braun (calf) is set to restart his rehab Friday with Low-A Wisconsin, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun is finally ready to head out for some minor-league action after being placed on the disabled list in late May. He will join Wisconsin on Friday, and likely make a couple of appearances before rejoining the Brewers in Cincinnati on Tuesday if all goes according to plan.

Braun's calf has apparently stalled his rehab process , Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun was on the verge of heading out on a rehab assignment last week, but now it appears that will have to wait. It's unclear how long Braun will remained stalled before embarking on his rehab stint, but more should be known as the Brewers continue to update his condition. The 33-year-old has already been on the DL twice this season, so the Brewers will continue to proceed cautiously with the veteran outfielder.

Braun (calf) is close to embarking on a rehab assignment but could be delayed a bit due to scheduling difficulties, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

With many leagues in the minor coming up on their All-Star breaks, the Brewers are having trouble mapping out a time where their embattled star can make a string of game appearances. Despite the roadblock, it seems that Braun is close to returning to the lineup and will only be delayed a couple days due to this new issue.

Braun (calf) will take fly balls during batting practice Thursday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers continue to bring back their star outfielder slowly after landing on the disabled list with another calf injury in late May. The team isn't going to plan a rehab stint until after he clears this hurdle in his recovery process, although manager Craig Counsell did say that they're "hoping for some pretty good feedback" following the session. Things should become clearer once Braun completes the day's activities, but in the meantime, look for some combination of Hernan Perez, Eric Thames and Lewis Brinson to pick up starts in left field in his stead.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Braun (calf) is continuing to make progress, but remains without a timetable for beginning a minor-league rehab assignment, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun has been sidelined for a little over two weeks with the calf injury, and while it doesn't sound as though he's experienced any setbacks in his recovery, it's a growing likelihood that he could be trending toward a month-long absence. Hernan Perez has been acting as the primary replacement for Braun in the left field, but with Jonathan Villar (back) and Travis Shaw (personal) also missing time of late, the Brewers opted to fortify the outfield by adding prospects Lewis Brinson and Brett Phillips. One of those latter two players could end up seeing regular at-bats in Braun's stead if the absences of Villar and Shaw make playing the infield more of a priority for the versatile Perez.

Braun (calf) was able to take pregame batting practice Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun has been able to take BP consistently since being out, although he still hasn't progressed to running on the field, meaning he's still a ways away from returning to full action. Hernan Perez and Eric Thames should continue to man left field while he's out.

Braun (calf) will probably have "a multi-week downtime" for his current stint on the 10-day disabled list, though he's improving day-to-day, MLB Network Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

General manager David Stearns provided the update and echoed the conservative management of their star that Milwaukee has espoused for most of 2017. That goes double for resting Braun as long as possible now that Milwaukee surprisingly finds itself atop the NL Central. They'll want to conserve him to either use him as a key to making a playoff push or as a trade piece should they falter and go back to rebuilding. Either way, Milwaukee will continue to piece together his replacements in left field, with Hernan Perez and Eric Sogard gaining the most fantasy value as near everyday players in his stead.

Braun (calf) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Braun will take another trip to the disabled list after aggravating his calf injury chasing down a foul ball. The results of the MRI he got still haven't been released, but a timetable for his return should emerge once that happens. Junior Guerra was activated from the disabled list to take his spot on the roster.
