Ryan Braun isn't sure if he'll be with the Milwaukee Brewers when spring training begins.
"Not knowing 100 percent where [I'll] be playing is hard. It definitely complicates things," Braun said. "Obviously, things come up. It's a part of the business. It's a part of the profession. If something were to happen, we'd figure it out when we get there."
Braun has a limited no-trade provision but would have the ability to block any swap starting in late May, when he becomes a 10-year veteran who has spent his past five seasons with his current team.
"I get asked about it regularly," David Stearns said of a possible trade. "I know that's a big story this offseason, but I'm very happy that Ryan is a member of the Milwaukee Brewers. I expect him to be a member of the Milwaukee Brewers going forward. I'm happy that he's here at the event today."
