Ryan Braun undergoes right thumb procedure

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun underwent a cryotherapy procedure today on his right thumb. The procedure was performed by Dr. Vernon Williams at the Kerlan Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles. Braun will meet again with Dr. Williams on Monday, October 6. If there is no adverse reaction to the treatment, Braun will begin swinging a bat to determine the effect of the procedure on his swing along with his pain tolerance.

Braun batted .266 with 19 HR, 81 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 135 games this season.
