MLB notebook: Braun goes on disabled list
The Brewers put outfielder Ryan Braun on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique in his right side before the second game of their series against the Reds.
Braun had missed the past six games because of the injury. Since he hasn't played, the move was made retroactive to April 27, and he will be eligible to return May 12.
Milwaukee activated outfielder Logan Schafer off the disabled list.
Freese hopes to avoid DL
The Angels' David Freese was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of his right middle finger a day after being hit on the hand by a pitch from the Rangers' Colby Lewis.
MLB.com reported that Freese is hoping that he'll be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list. How Freese feels over the next couple of days will be key.
