    MLB Notes: Brewers activate Ryan Braun (strained calf) from DL

    CHICAGO -- Ryan Braun has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and started in left field for the Milwaukee Brewers in the finale of a two-game series against the Chicago Cubs.

    Braun hit third Sunday in his first appearance since May 10. Braun, who had been sidelined by a strained left calf, was hitting .287 with seven homers and 18 RBIs.

    Milwaukee optioned right-hander Tyler Cravy to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Cravy had been recalled on Saturday to bolster a tired bullpen before the game was postponed because of rain.

    CHICAGO -- Jason Heyward has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and started in right field for the Chicago Cubs in the finale of a two-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers.

    Heyward, batting .253 with three homers and 17 RBIs, had been on the DL since May 8 because of a sprained right finger.

    Astros place Brian McCann on 7-day DL with concussion
    HOUSTON -- The Astros have placed catcher Brian McCann on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

    The move is retroactive to Saturday and comes a day after Houston placed ace Dallas Keuchel on the 10-day disabled list because of a pinched nerve in his neck.

    Houston isn't sure exactly when McCann was injured, but manager A.J. Hinch said that McCann told the team he wasn't feeling like himself on Saturday. He was then evaluated by a doctor who diagnosed him with a concussion.

    McCann is hitting .265 with six homers and 25 RBIs in 30 games this season.

    The Astros selected the contract of catcher Juan Centeno from Triple-A Fresno to take his spot on the roster. Centeno is hitting .368 with seven doubles and nine RBIs in 22 games for the Grizzlies.
