NL Central-leading Brewers get Ryan Braun, Jonathan Villar back from DL


The Brewers activated Ryan Braun and Jonathan Villar from the disabled list Tuesday.

OF Ryan Braun and 2B Jonathan Villar reinstated from the 10-day DL. INF/OF Nick Franklin designated for assignment. 40-man roster is at 39.

Braun has been out since May 25 due to a calf strain. He has played just 30 games this season.

Villar had been struggling even before hitting the shelf (back). The speedy infielder, who nabbed 62 bases last year, currently holds a woeful .213/.283/.342 slash line with six home runs and 14 stolen bases.

This pick goes to the Jazz, who will send Trey Lyles and the No. 24 overall pick back to Denver. It’s a somewhat steep price to pay, but it makes sense for the Jazz to do it for Mitchell given some of the uncertainty in their backcourt. He’ll immediately increase their athleticism levels, and he’s also a high-character, high-level kid to add to that locker room.

In a vacuum, I had Adebayo at No. 22 on my board. But this is a perfect fit schematically for what Miami likes to do, and it makes a ton of sense for the Heat to select the Kentucky product here. He moves exceedingly well on the perimeter due to his quickness/athleticism. He’ll be able to blitz pick-and-rolls defensively, and hopefully add some skill offensively. The key for him will be rebounding, as he’d Cheap Jerseys And Sunglasses occasionally get beaten on the defensive glass this year.

The Kings can really use some size and shooting skill on the wing, and Jackson is a great fit, especially when you consider they moved back to take a perfect player for them and gained assets to do it. De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Jackson is a great triumvirate to build around on the Cheap Jerseys Basketball perimeter, with star power as well as role players.
