Brewers' Ryan Braun: Won't start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Braun heads to the bench after going 7-for-20 with three extra-base hits while starting in each of the previous six games. Jace Peterson will spell Braun in right field in the series finale.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Slugs seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer against the Royals on Saturday.

Braun came to the plate with runners on first and second in the eighth inning and delivered a home run to put the Brewers up 5-0. He now has seven home runs on the season, five of which have come in his last nine appearances. Overall, Braun is hitting .255/.306/.549 with a 25 RBI and 11 runs scored across 113 plate appearances.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (back) will bat third as the designated hitter Saturday against the Royals.

Braun left Friday's game with back spasms, but the issue was evidently a minor one. He's ready to return without missing a single start and will look to build on his excellent .406/.444/.906 slash line this month.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Diagnosed with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said Friday that Braun is dealing with back spasms, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Braun was removed from Friday's game in the bottom of the fourth inning after hitting a single. The 36-year-old dealt with a similar issue in late August and early September. Counsell said that the team should know more about the severity of the issue Saturday. Ben Gamel also left the game with a quad injury, so it's unclear who could take over in right field if they miss time.

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

Braun exited Friday's game against the Royals with low back tightness, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Braun hit a single in the bottom of the fourth inning but was replaced by pinch-runner Ben Gamel due to his injury. The severity of the issue is unclear. If Braun is forced to miss any additional time, Gamel could take his place in right field.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Smacks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in a 6-0 win over the Brewers in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Braun didn't start the first game Wednesday, but he packed a punch in the nightcap. Cardinals starter Johan Oviedo allowed the first two batters to reach in the first inning, and Braun made him pay with the homer. The 36-year-old Braun homered four times in his last six games and is slashing .367/.412/.900 -- yes, .900 -- through 10 games this month.

September 16, 2020 03:16 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Sits for afternoon game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup for the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

It's no surprise to see that an oft-injured veteran like Braun won't be tasked with starting twice in one day. Ben Gamel starts in right field for the first game of the day, but Braun will likely return to the lineup for the nightcap.

September 16, 2020 01:28 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 1-for-2 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 18-3 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy managers watched Ben Gamel pinch run and poach a third run scored from Braun's total. Regardless, Braun is hitting a healthy 7-for-21 over his last seven games and has homered in three of his past six contests.

September 13, 2020 11:04 AM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Braun is responsible for all three of Milwaukee's runs through the first two games of the series with a sacrifice fly Friday and a two-run homer Saturday, but he'll head to the bench for the series finale. Ben Gamel will take over in right field Sunday for the Brewers.

September 14, 2020 02:48 AM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Connects on fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Saturday in the Brewers' 4-2 loss to the Cubs.

Braun was responsible for the Brewers' only runs of the day, taking Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks deep to center field for a two-run home run in the fourth inning. The 36-year-old has provided two of his four long balls on the season over his past three starts, raising his OPS to .727 in the process. That figure is still the lowest of Braun's 14-year career and represents a downturn of more than 100 points from 2019 (.848).

September 12, 2020 07:16 AM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Provides game-winning run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 0-for-3 with the game-winning RBI in the Brewers' 1-0 victory over the Cubs on Friday.

In a game where the Brewers only recorded four hits, Braun made the difference with a walk-off sacrifice fly. It concluded a 27-strikeout showdown between Brandon Woodruff, Jon Lester and the bullpens. Nonetheless, Braun is now slashing .300/.358/.550 through his past seven games.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Goes deep in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs, three RBI and a walk during Wednesday's 19-0 win over the Tigers.

The veteran slugger has been unavailable for much of the past couple weeks while dealing with back issues, so it's a good sign he remained in for the entirety of Wednesday's contest despite the lopsided score. Braun has a .231/.286/.436 slash line with three home runs, five doubles and 13 RBI in 23 games.

September 8, 2020 05:40 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Sits for second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun sits for the second straight game Tuesday against the Tigers.

Braun missed four games with back issues last week but returned Saturday before heading right back to the bench for Sunday's game. Whether or not his continued absence Tuesday is due to the same injury is not yet clear. Daniel Vogelbach will be the designated hitter Tuesday, while Ben Gamel starts in right field.

September 5, 2020 04:00 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (back) will bat cleanup and play right field Saturday in Cleveland.

Braun was out of the lineup for four straight games with a sore back, though he was able to appear off the bench Friday. The veteran has struggled at the plate this season, posting a .191/.247/.353 slash line in 20 games.

September 4, 2020 05:00 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: May return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said he hopes Braun (back) is back in the lineup Saturday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Braun returned from a bout of back tightness for one game last Sunday, but he's subsequently sat out the past four contests. Jace Peterson starts in right field Friday for the Brewers.

September 2, 2020 05:32 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Sitting third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers.

The veteran slugger missed Saturday's contest with lower back tightness and returned to action Sunday, but he's now been on the bench each of the past three games. It's unclear if Braun aggravated this injury or if manager Craig Counsell simply likes other matchups. Ben Gamel starts in right field Wednesday, while Keston Hiura serves as the designated hitter.

September 1, 2020 04:00 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Not starting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.

Braun will take a seat for the second consecutive game. Ben Gamel will start in right field in his absence.

Brewers' Ryan Braun: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun isn't in the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

Braun returned to the lineup Sunday after missing Saturday's game with lower-back tightness. However, he'll get a day off Monday with Jace Peterson starting in right field.

August 30, 2020 12:08 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun (back) is batting cleanup as the designated hitter Sunday against the Pirates.

Bruan was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup with lower back tightness, but it was apparently a minor issue as he'll rejoin the starting nine a day later. The 36-year-old has a .194/.242/.371 slash line with two homers and nine RBI in 18 games.

August 29, 2020 06:48 PM
Brewers' Ryan Braun: Scratched with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun was scratched from Saturday's game against the Pirates with lower back tightness, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The veteran slugger was slated to start in right field and bat fifth, but he was pulled from the lineup due to the back issue. Braun should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury. Jace Peterson will start in right field in his place.
