Braun will undergo a minimally-invasive surgical procedure on his thumb Thursday morning in Los Angeles, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke acknowledged that there have been some internal discussions about moving Braun to first base, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I haven't talked enough with [GM Doug Melvin] about it to even know if there would be a reason to do it," Roenicke said. "I think he's a good defender in the outfield, learning a new position that he picked up pretty fast. I think he'll continue to get better in right. We haven't approached (Braun) about it. It's just kind of what the needs are. We have [Gerardo Parra] here now and we need to figure out what to do with him for next year."
