MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers placed outfielder Ryan Braun on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with middle back tightness.
The move is retroactive to Monday.
The Brewers will announce a corresponding roster move Friday, ahead of a three-game road series with the Minnesota Twins.
Braun is eligible to be reinstated Thursday, May 24 when the Brewers open a three-game series with the New York Mets at Miller Park.
The All-Star outfielder is hitting .222 with five homers and 20 runs batted in splitting time in left field and first base this season.
