Ryan Braun continues to work out and stay in shape, but isn’t currently “interested in playing.”

Fantasy Impact

“I’m continuing to work out and stay in shape, but I’m not currently interested in playing,” said Braun. The Brewers declined his $15 million player option during the offseason. He is mulling retirement, but is staying in touch with the Brewers. “I am enjoying my family and focused on other business interests for now but appreciate the interest I’ve received and will continue to regularly stay in touch with the Brewers,” said Braun. The 37-year-old slashed .233/.281/.488 with eight home runs, 26 RBI, 14 runs scored and one stolen base across 139 plate appearances for the Brewers in 2020.

Ryan Braun has 'no decision' yet on playing in 2021

Free agent outfielder Ryan Braun has not made a decision on his 2021 plans, according to Brewers GM David Stearns.

Fantasy Impact

Beat writer Adam McCalvy noted that Stearns mentioned that "both sides have been in contact, sometimes through Craig Counsell, so everyone has a feel for where things stand. But no decision yet." Braun had his $15 million option declined by Milwaukee in late October, becoming a free agent. He's hinted at possibly hanging up the cleats for good this offseason and the clock is ticking for him to make a decision as spring training is set to begin in just two weeks time.

Ryan Braun becomes a free agent

OF Ryan Braun was listed on the list of free agents provided by the MLBPA on Thursday. The Brewers have declined his $15 million dollar mutual option for 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Braun will become a free agent after playing 14 years of his career in Milwaukee. The 36-year-old had hinted at retirement recently, but it remains to be seen if plays for another season. He slashed .233/.281/.488 with eight home runs, 26 RBI, 14 runs scored and one stolen base over 39 games in 2020. Braun will look to latch onto another team during the off-season or re-sign with the Brewers on a team-friendly deal.

Ryan Braun expected to wait until new year to make decision about playing

Brewers GM David Stearns expects Ryan Braun to wait until the new year to make a decision about whether or not to continue playing in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Braun and the Brewer have a $15 million mutual option for 2021. It sounds like Milwaukee has interest in bringing back the former MVP on a smaller contract, but Braun might retire altogether. He once again dealt with some minor injuries throughout 2020.
