Former Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun never formally retired after the 2020 season, but he’s also non-committal on a return to profession baseball while he remains unsigned.
However, Braun’s wife sparked the comeback talk when she posted a video of her husband taking some batting practice earlier in the week.
By the looks of it, the swing appears to be just fine.

While the status of Ryan Braun’s potential comeback remains unknown, the Brewers could desperately use his services.
Milwaukee is currently being propped up by a dominant pitching staff. But their offense has sputtered all season long.
Ryan Braun played some outfield and first base during his time in the MLB, and you’d think he’d be an upgrade over the lack of production the Brewers have received at first so far in 2021. Keston Hiura, the Brewers’ Opening Day first baseman, was recently sent down to the minor leagues after starting the season hitting .130. The replacements of Dan Vogelbach and Travis Shaw haven’t been much better, either.
Sure, Ryan Braun had the worst season of his career in 2020, hitting just .233. But many great players struggled during the COVID-shortened season.
I think the Brewers would be happy to take Ryan Braun back. It’s more a matter of whether or not he still has the itch to play in the MLB.
