Ryan Braun (side) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.
Braun has had trouble getting loose the last few days, feeling some tightness in his right side. At this point it's not considered more than a day-to-day injury. Jake Elmore is in left field Friday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Braun's absence is great news for Steven Brault, but the Brewers still possess multiple RH bats that should give him trouble. Chris Carter and Jonathan Lucroy will shift up one spot in the order with Hernan Perez batting fifth and Jake Elmore slotting second. Perez is arguably the sneakiest target of the group; he owns a very solid .348 wOBA, .256 ISO and 39.4 hard% against southpaws in 2016 and has added 16 SBs despite limited playing time earlier in the season. Elmore is a viable punt play batting second, but he doesn't have much of a ceiling. Jul 29 - 5:01 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Brewers have received "at least one offer" for Ryan Braun but considered the offer "terrible."

Which team extended the offer isn't known. Braun is 32 and owed nearly $100 million through 2021, but he's put up a .321/.383/.515 batting line this season so the Brewers understandably don't consider this a salary dump situation. Obviously the offers will have to get much better in order for them to consider moving Braun.

Ryan Braun was scratched from the Brewers' lineup on Thursday due to right side tightness.

He is considered day-to-day for now. Ramon Flores will switch from right field to left field and Kirk Nieuwenhuis will draw the start in right versus Arizona.
Jul 28 - 1:04 PM

Ryan Braun went 1-for-2 with two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

As he's been all month and most of the year, Braun was an on-base machine Tuesday, and he made the D'backs pay each time he reached. He's now hitting .319 with 16 runs scored this month, but strangely just two RBI. The 32-year-old is also riding an 11-game hitting streak. It all adds up to a .324/.386/.520 line with 14 homers, 46 RBI, 50 runs scored and 12 stolen bases overall.

Ryan Braun slugged a solo homer and drew a walk in Friday’s loss to the Cubs.

His fourth-inning blast against Jason Hammel was his 14th home run on the year and his first since June 29. Braun has now hit safely in seven straight games and is hitting .315/.373/.516 on the year.
Jul 22 - 11:49 PM

Ryan Braun finished 2-for-4, walked, stole a base and scored three runs on Wednesday.

One of the hits was a triple. Braun spent a lot of time running around the bases tonight, which is a pleasing sight for his owners. All that running is a sign that Braun is fully healthy for once, and a fully healthy Ryan Braun can be a fantasy monster. He is batting .316/.373/.512 with 13 home runs, 44 RBI and 8 stolen bases.
Jul 21 - 12:41 AM

Ryan Braun will get the day off Wednesday.

Ramon Flores will start in left field and bat eighth versus Nationals right-hander Tanner Roark. Hernan Perez is starting in right field and batting seventh.
Jul 6 - 12:47 PM

Ryan Braun hit a two run home run and finished 2-for-4 with four RBI on Wednesday.

His other hit was a two-run double. Despite battling some nagging injuries, Braun is having an excellent season. The home run was his 12th of the year to complement his .322 batting average.
Jun 30 - 12:10 AM

Ryan Braun is absent from the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun is getting a breather against Max Scherzer, so he probably didn't put up much of a fight. Alex Presley is in left field.
Jun 24 - 4:58 PM

Ryan Braun launched his 12th homer of the season on Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Braun has battled nagging injuries all year long but is quietly having a solid season at the plate. His .312/.373/.532 slash stats all closely mirror his career averages. His counting stats (12 homers, 29 runs, 37 RBI, 6 steals) are down a little, largely because the lineup the Brewers are putting around him is so weak. He remains an elite hitter when healthy but he hasn't played more than 140 games in a season since 2012.
Jun 19 - 2:12 AM

Brewers owner Mark Attanasio said the team is not actively shopping Ryan Braun or Jonathan Lucroy.

Take that with a grain of salt. Saying a player isn't available when they really are is a classic negotiating ploy. If the Brewers make Braun and Lucroy too available, their trade values will go down. It might be true that Milwaukee isn't "actively" shopping either player, but the Brewers would almost pull the trigger if the right deal came along. With the Brewers headed nowhere this season, the team would be wise to flip one of their stars for a fleet of prospects.
Jun 16 - 10:04 PM

Ryan Braun is getting the day off Wednesday.

Alex Presley will start in left field and Ramon Flores will start in right field against Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto. Braun went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Tuesday but still boasts a .307/.367/.522 batting line for the year. Trade rumors continue to swirl around the 32-year-old outfielder.
Jun 15 - 1:08 PM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports the Giants have had "preliminary talks" about a trade for Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun.

Nightengale notes that "nothing is imminent" and that San Francisco is "looking everywhere" for outfield help. Braun has an ugly recent history with physical ailments, is owed more than $100 million, and will turn 33 years old in November. Milwaukee will probably have to eat some money in order to find a good return package, even with Braun sporting a strong .919 OPS through 52 games in 2016.
Jun 13 - 11:40 AM

Ryan Braun homered twice Saturday as the Brewers beat the Mets 7-4 in Milwaukee.

He hit a pair of solo shots -- one in the third inning of Mets spot starter Logan Verrett and the other in the seventh off Antonio Bastardo. It was a big bounceback performance for Braun, who went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts on Friday night. He's been playing through a neck injury for the last few weeks.

Ryan Braun went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts on Friday versus Matt Harvey and the Mets.

Braun was white hot in April and May but has gone ice cold in June. Braun has missed some games lately due to a neck injury and has also attempted to play through nagging wrist and back issues. His owners are hoping he recovers quickly and doesn't need to go on the disabled list. His .312/.378/.508 line still looks excellent but has been trending sharply downward the last couple of weeks.
