Brewers place Braun on 15-day DLMilwaukee puts the outfielder on the DL Saturday with an oblique strain
Braun had missed the last 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 on May 12.
Milwaukee activated outfielder Logan Schafer off the disabled list. He'd been sidelined by a strained right hamstring.
Braun went on the disabled list for the first time in his career last season, sidelined from June 14 to July 7 with an injured right thumb. He accepted a 65-game suspension on July 22 for violations of Major League Baseball's drug agreement and labor contract.
