MRI shows no damage in Ryan Braun’s rib cage

4 Comments

Ryan Braun had to be pulled from Monday’s season-opener against the Rockies after tweaking a muscle in his rib cage while extending to make a catch in right field. There was some concern that it might be an oblique or intercostal strain, which would send him to the 15-day disabled list, but worry no more …

Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that an MRI taken Tuesday showed no structural damage. Braun said he’s already feeling much better and expects to return to the Brewers’ starting lineup in the next day or two.
