Ryan Braun (thumb) swung a bat Sunday and said it felt pretty good. He will take more swings later this week.

That is good news for Braun, but I'm worried about the status of his thumb around February and March, when fantasy drafts are going on, then in October when the season just ended.

Brewers have announced that manager Ron Roenicke will return in 2015.

Roenicke watched his first place Brewers collapse down the stretch and completely miss the playoffs. Given their success in the early part of the season it looks as if ownership will give him another chance to lead the Brewers to the playoffs.

Brewers announce C Matt Pagnozzi elected free agency.

Pagnozzi is hoping that someone will give him a shot as a big-league back-up catcher after he spent nearly all of last year in the minors. Even with a job in the majors, he won't provide you with enough to make him fantasy relevant.

Jeff Bianchi was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville. He declined the assignment and elected free agency.

It's doubtful that Bianchi lands anywhere that will give him a full-time gig, but he'd rather make a run at it anyway than just stay in his part-time utility role with the Brewers.

Ryan Braun (thumb) has been cleared to swing a bat.

Although he has been cleared to swing a bat, he doesn't expect to actually hit a baseball until closer to the end of the week. The thumb has bothered him since early in 2013, and their hopes remain that the surgery will fix that nerve issue. This past season Braun hit .266 with 19 home runs, 81 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases.

Brewers activate INF Jeff Bianchi from 60-day disabled list.

Just a procedural move as the Brewers tend to their 40-man roster in the offseason. Bianchi will likely fill a very similar utility role next season.

Ryan Braun will test out his right thumb with some swings on Monday.

The rehab process could be lengthy this offseason, but the sooner he starts testing it out after surgery, the better. The procedure was deemed minor, but it could also just be the start of what needs to be done to fix Braun's problem. He is still expected to be ready for 2015 spring training.

Matt Pagnozzi was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

This is all you need to know about Matt Pagnozzi: Over eight season at the Triple-A level he owns a triple slash of .228/.306/.341.

Brewers announce that Ryan Braun underwent the scheduled cryotherapy procedure on his right thumb Thursday.

The thumb has been an issue for Braun over the past couple of seasons and it is good to see him finally have surgery to correct the issue.

Ryan Braun is scheduled to undergo the procedure on his hand Thursday in Los Angeles.

Braun is hoping to clear up the thumb issues now so that he has the entire offseason to rehab and work on getting his strength back. He should be ready for spring training and will look to rebound from another injury-plagued season.
