Brewers' Ryan Braun: Dealing with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in Sunday's lineup due to back tightness, Tom Hadricourt of Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Braun had started eight of the Brewers' nine games since the All-Star break, collecting a hit in all but one of them. He will have a few days off to rest his back, as he was already scheduled to be away from the team on Monday to attend Tyler Skaggs' funeral. Ben Gamel will start in right field and bat seventh in Braun's place.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Launches 14th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Braun crushed a 436-foot solo home run off T.J. McFarland in the ninth inning to extend the Brewers' lead to 5-1. He also contributed another RBI on a sacrifice fly in the second. The 35-year-old has now recorded hits in five of his six contests post All-Star break. On the season, Braun is batting .272/.322/.474 with 14 home runs, 45 RBI and 41 runs scored.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Braves.

The Brewers continue to give Braun fairly regular rest, a plan which appears to be working well enough, as the veteran owns a decent .270/.321/.459 slash line, good for a technically above-average 101 wRC+. Ben Gamel starts in left field.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Will miss Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun will miss Monday's game against the Braves to attend the funeral for Tyler Skaggs in California, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The Brewers play 13 games without an off day to start the second half, so Braun, who has battled knee issues all season, would have received at least one off day during that stretch anyway. Just be aware that he will play a maximum of six games next week.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (knee) is back in the lineup Friday, starting in left field and batting fifth against the Giants.

Braun missed four consecutive starts heading into the break due to a right knee issue, which he revealed to be an aggravation of an injury suffered last fall during the postseason. He seems to be feeling better after some time off, but the Brewers will probably look to give Braun semi-regular maintenance days down the stretch to help ensure he stays upright.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Not starting again before break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (knee) will be limited to pinch-hit/emergency duty through the All-Star break, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Braun revealed Friday that he injured his right knee at the start of last year's playoffs, and it was pretty bad, to the point he was restricted from lower-body work all winter. He aggravated the issue earlier in the week, presumably when he slid into the outfield wall while making a catch. Tyler Saladino is starting in left field Friday but look for Ben Gamel to get the nod Saturday and Sunday with two right-handers lined up for Pittsburgh.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Still out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (knee) remains out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

The 35-year-old is dealing with some knee soreness stemming from Tuesday when he slid into the wall while making a catch. There has been nothing yet to suggest an IL stint will be necessary. Tyler Saladino is starting in left field and batting seventh against lefty Steven Brault.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Tending to sore knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds due to what manager Craig Counsell described as a sore knee, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

Even though he was able to start in the outfield in Wednesday's 3-0 loss, Braun may still be tending to some residual soreness from the awkward sliding catch he made in Tuesday's contest that resulted in his early removal. Braun's injury isn't believed to be a major concern, but he'll cede left field to Tyler Saladino in the series finale with an eye on returning to the starting nine Friday in Pittsburgh.

July 3, 2019 04:24 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Remains in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (leg) will start Wednesday against the Reds.

Braun left Tuesday's contest after making a sliding catch along the wall, but the injury evidently wasn't particularly serious. He'll bat third and play left field Wednesday.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Exits after sliding catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun left Tuesday's game at Cincinnati after making a sliding catch into the wall down the left-field line, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Braun appeared somewhat gimpy after making the catch and was immediately removed via a double switch, though he appeared to be in good spirits while leaving the field. Manager Craig Counsell said the veteran outfielder was "banged up" on the play, but he was planning on making the double switch regardless. Braun could very well be held out of Wednesday's lineup just to be safe, but it doesn't appear to be a serious issue.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Out of Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup for Monday's game at Cincinnati.

Braun started six of the last seven games but will receive Monday off after going 10-for-24 with four doubles and five runs scored in that stretch. Ben Gamel will start in left field and bat seventh in his absence.

June 28, 2019 04:52 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

Braun piled up eight hits over his last four games, but with the Brewers trying to keep him fresh and Braun going just 2-for-11 (.182) in his career against Pirates starter Chris Archer, manager Craig Counsell decided it was best to hold him out Friday. Ben Gamel will get the start in left field in Braun's place.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Doubles twice in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a stolen base in Sunday's victory over the Reds.

Braun was seemingly refreshed after being limited to pinch-hit duty the two days before, tallying as many extra-base hits as he accumulated over the previous nine games and stealing his first base since May 15. Barring an unannounced injury of any sort, Braun figures to continue playing most days in left field like he has done all season.

June 22, 2019 02:00 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Sits again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun remains on the bench for Saturday's game against Cincinnati.

Braun will be out of the lineup for the second straight game. It's not clear if he's battling some minor injury or simply being given the chance to rest. He did appear off the bench in Friday's contest, so any hypothetical injury would seem to be minor. Ben Gamel will start again in left field.

June 21, 2019 05:16 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds.

Braun sits after making eight straight starts. Ben Gamel will get the nod in left field.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Launches 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Padres.

The veteran outfielder continues to put together another solid campaign. Braun is slashing .266/.317/.456 with 12 homers and 40 RBI through 68 games, and hitting behind Christian Yelich is giving him a shot at his first 100-RBI season since 2012.

June 11, 2019 05:12 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Receives day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun will head to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Astros.

Braun is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak, but he'll get the night off in an effort to get more left-handed batters into the starting lineup. The Brewers will roll with Ben Gamel in left field for the series opener.

June 8, 2019 05:12 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Drills 10th homer of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Friday against the Pirates.

Braun extended Milwaukee's lead in the bottom of the sixth inning with a three-run shot to center field. Entering the day, he hadn't homered since May 14, but he is in the midst of a five-game hitting streak and has posted a .270/.324/.465 slash line with 10 long balls through 59 games this season.

June 7, 2019 01:08 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: In Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Braun was limited to pinch-hit duty Wednesday -- and he did, indeed, record a pinch hit -- but he will be back in his customary spot in left field Thursday afternoon, and he will hit third against Marlins starter Caleb Smith. After going 0-for-10 over three games between May 30 and June 1, Braun went 4-for-9 over his last three games.

May 30, 2019 03:44 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

Braun will retreat to the bench for what appears to be a regular day off after starting the past five games, going 6-for-18 with four doubles and a pair of runs scored in those contests. In his absence, Ben Gamel is starting in left field and hitting leadoff.
