Ryan Braun struggling mightily

Wed, Mar 18th 11:00pm EDT
By Kyle Smith

Ryan Braun has stumbled out of the gate so far this spring. He has failed to record a hit through 12 plate appearances and has struck out five times. He has also walked three times.

Fantasy Impact: While not recording a hit thus far this spring isn't necessarily a big deal for Braun, he is coming off a career-low .266 batting average in 2014. Braun's numbers were down all across the board last year and he may be showing signs of regression. He should still be drafted as an elite outfielder but don't be caught off guard by a continued slump.

 

Braun underwent a surgical procedure in October to relieve an inflamed nerve in his right hand. Braun looks like he should be ready to resume all baseball activities and is set to begin the season in right field after coming off an injury-plagued 2014. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Braun played in 135 games in 2014, hitting .266 with 19 home runs and 81 runs batted in. If healthy Braun should put up 20+ home runs again however his days of hitting 41 like he did in 2012 are likely over. Monitor his progress to make sure his hand holds up during game action this spring.
