Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun left Monday's game with a bruised quad, but he's in the lineup Tuesday.
Insight: Braun went 3-for-4 with a solo homer before leaving and has gone 10-for-26 with a double and two homers during a six-game hitting streak.
 
8/26/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun lashed out three hits including a home run, but left Monday's game with a bruised left quadriceps.
Insight: Braun has a six-game hitting streak (10-for-26) to raise his average to .282 with 17 HR and 74 RBI. Nice totals for most players, but we expect more from the Brewers' slugger.
 
8/23/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has homered twice and driven in six runs in his last five games.
Insight: Braun is only hitting .221 with five homers, 21 RBI and a .685 OPS since the All-Star break. Besides last season, when he only had 225 at-bats, he's never had less than 25 homers, 97 RBI or 91 runs in a season, but he's on pace for just 20 homers, 92 RBI, and 77 runs. The career .309 hitter is also batting .276, and his .811 OPS is 114 points lower than his career OPS.
 
8/15/2014 7:10:00 PM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is in the lineup Friday after sitting out Thursday.
Insight: Braun sat out due to his recurring thumb injury. His .279 average and .814 OPS are both career lows.
 
8/14/2014 1:07:00 PM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is not in Thursday's starting lineup.
Insight: Braun (.279, 14 HR, 67 RBI) went hitless in his last two games and could probably use the day of rest. This is not the Braun fantasy owners were expecting to get. His seven-year average heading into the season was .312 with 30 HR, 97 RBI, 19 SB and a .938 OPS.
 
Hot8/5/2014 1:33:00 PM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a career .333 hitter against the Giants Tuesday starter Tim Lincecum. He's also 3-for-3 in stolen base attempts.
Insight: Braun (.291, 14 HR, 65 RBI) had a nice series against the rival Cardinals as he produced five hits in 12 at-bats. He's not the superstar he once was, but he's still a solid fantasy asset.
 
7/21/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a career .311 hitter, but just a .100 hitter (2-for-20 with six strikeouts) against Reds right-hander Mat Latos.
Insight: Braun (.298, 12 HR, 54 RBI) hasn't been able to match the production of his "Biogenesis Years," but he's still been productive this season. This matchup should obviously be avoided.
 
7/10/2014 11:35:00 AM
Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun (back) is back in the lineup for Thursday's finale with Philadelphia.
Insight: Braun (.291, 11 HR, 49 RBI) has been out of the starting lineup three of the past four games with a back injury. He's always hit Phillies pitching well (.396, 17 HR, 40 RBI, 1.174 OPS in 187 at-bats).
 
Hot7/8/2014 8:55:00 PM
Description: According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he doesn't expect Ryan Braun (back) to miss many more games, if any.
Insight: Braun (.291, 11 HR, 49 RBI) has been out of the starting lineup three of the past four games with a back injury.
 
Hot7/8/2014 4:24:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun is a career .474 hitter with two home runs against Phillies right-hander Kyle Kendrick. Update: Braun is not in Tuesday's starting lineup.
Insight: Braun has always "owned" Phillies pitching. He's a career .396 hitter with 17 homers and a 1.174 OPS against Philadelphia, but perhaps the back is acting up again.

7/7/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun (back) is in the lineup Monday.
Insight: Braun left Saturday's game with lower back spasms and didn't play Sunday. The 30-year-old has had a solid season (.288, 11 HR, 49 RBI, .847 OPS) but has been below the level he played at his first six seasons.
 
7/6/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun left the game in the second inning of Saturday's contest against the Cincinntai due to lower back spasms and is not in Sunday's starting lineup.
Insight: No surprise here. Braun just had an eight-game hitting streak snapped Friday night. He's batting .289 with 11 HR and 49 RBI. Not exactly up to his previous standards, but not horrible. Logan Schafer (.176) is in right field Sunday in Braun's place, but he has no fantasy value.

Hot6/29/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun is a career .727 hitter (8-for-11) with two home runs against Colorado starter Jorge De la Rosa.
Insight: Braun hasn't homered since June 14, but at least he's contributing for fantasy owners, batting .313 with 10 RBI over the past two weeks (11 games).
 
6/28/2014 8:32:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun has picked up 12 hits and eight RBI in his last 36 at-bats (.333)
Insight: Braun hasn't homered since June 14, but at least he's contributing for fantasy owners. He went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and two runs Saturday against the Rockies.
 
6/28/2014 10:39:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun had the game-winner on Friday night, but has an unfavorable matchup for Saturday afternoon.
Insight: Braun is 0-for-8 with five strikeouts versus Jhoulys Chacin. Braun's .821 OPS is solid, but the lowest he's posted in eight seasons. Avoid him Saturday.
 
6/23/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun (ankle) is in the lineup Monday against Washington, according to Adam McCalvy of mlb.com.
Insight: Braun rolled his ankle Sunday and was iffy for Monday's game, but he's ready to play. He has hit just .217 with two home runs and 20 Ks over 83 at-bats in June and is also hitting just .258 with a .710 OPS against left-handers this season, so he isn't a great play against Gio Gonzalez Monday.
 
6/22/2014 8:31:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun left Sunday's game after rolling his ankle, according to Andrew Gruman of foxsportswisconsin.com.
Insight: Manager Ron Roenicke said he doesn't think the injury is serious but is unsure about Braun's status for Monday's game. Braun has hit just .217 with two home runs and 20 Ks over 83 at-bats in June.
