Melvin: Braun on board to switch to right field

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Dec 5, 2013

The general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers says that the team's top slugger, who is coming off a suspension for PED use, is willing to swtich positions for 2014.

"Ryan (is) on board with making the change," said GM Doug Melvin on 620WTMJ's "Sports Central."

"I met with Ryan last week.  We discussed that, that it was a possibility.  A lot of right-fielders have the stature of being great all-around players."

Braun talked about the change of positions last week, that he was "possibly" open to switching spots.

"We discussed it.  I'm not opposed to it," he said in part of his final comments during a media session Wednesday at a Hunger Task Force charity event at Miller Park.
