Milwaukee Brewers’ Ryan Braun open to moving to right field


We all know what type of year former National League MVP Ryan Braun had following that Biogenesis Scandal.

It’s always disappointing when some of the top guys in this league get exposed and labeled as a cheater and no matter what they’ve done in their career, they’ll always be known as a cheat.

Now I don’t know how Milwaukee Brewers fans feel about him, either they love or hate him just like the rest of us. Anyways, next year he’s going to be able to come back and looking to have a rebound season after being suspended and being dropped by Nike.

I’m sure he would like to put all of this behind him, but I highly doubt it’s just going to go away just like that. With him returning to the team next year, we all know that left field has been his.

According to MLB.com, Braun told manager Rod Roenicke that he would be open to moving to right field. That would open up left field for 25 year old Lakewood, California native Khris Davis.

Davis doesn’t have a strong enough arm to hold down right field, so left field would be a much better fit for him. So far in his young career, Davis has a .279 batting average with 38 hits, 11 of those being home runs and 27 RBI’s.

So if this happens, what would they do with Norichika Aoki? I think we all know the answer to that question.
