Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a right oblique strain.
The move is retroactive to April 27. He is eligible to come off the DL on May 12.
Braun has not played since April 26. He was initially projected to miss three to five games after an MRI taken Monday confirmed the injury. However, the team decided to place him on the DL after he was re-evaluated.
In a corresponding move, the Brewers activated outfielder Logan Schafer from the DL.
Braun is batting .318 with six home runs and 18 RBIs in 22 games.
