Ryan Braun has left the Brewers to return to Milwaukee to be with wife Larisa for the birth of their first child.

The good news is that Braun will not have to go on paternity leave with the rosters being expanded. It looks like he will only miss one game due to the birth of his first child. He should be good to go for the Brewers huge four-game series against the division leading Cardinals this weekend. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
