Brewers' Braun out of lineup with left calf strain

CBSSports.com wire reports

SAN FRANCISCO -- All-Star left fielder Ryan Braun is out of the starting lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers against the San Francisco Giants to rest his lingering left calf strain.

Braun says he feels fine and he didn't re-injure his calf after playing the last two games. Mark Kotsay started in his place Friday night.

The injury sidelined Braun for the All-Star game despite being the NL's top vote-getter. He also missed more than a week before the break, and the Brewers want to ease his transition back.

Braun is hitting .319 with 18 home runs and 66 RBI. The Brewers entered Friday percentage points behind first-place Pittsburgh in the NL Central.
