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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Braun has dealt with a multitude of injuries lately, but this just appears to be a day of rest. Ramon Flores is in left field.
Jun 5 - 11:06 AM

Ryan Braun (neck) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.

Braun acknowledged Monday that he doesn't have full mobility in his neck, but he'll try to give it a go in the second game of a three-game set at Miller Park. He missed three straight days with neck stiffness.
May 31 - 4:42 PM

Ryan Braun said Monday that he still lacks full mobility in his neck.

Braun has been dealing with stiffness and soreness in his neck of late and will miss his third straight game on Monday. He's feeling some improvement, but will continue getting treatment for now. The Brewers will see how he feels on Tuesday.
May 30 - 5:45 PM

Ryan Braun (neck) remains out of the Brewers' starting lineup Monday against the Cardinals.

Braun has now missed three straight games with stiffness and soreness in his neck. He's also been battling back and wrist issues. Alex Presley is starting in left field and batting sixth on Monday afternoon with the Cardinals throwing right-hander Carlos Martinez.
May 30 - 11:33 AM

Ryan Braun is not in the Brewers' lineup for the second straight day Sunday due to neck stiffness/soreness.

Add another injury to the list. Braun has also battled back and wrist injuries this season and has played just six out of the last 14 games. He's been outstanding when healthy, batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs. Braun's name keeps popping up in trade rumors, but his inability to stay on the field could hurt his market.
May 29 - 12:35 PM

Ryan Braun (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight games and eight out of the last 14 contests with a variety of ailments. His back has been the most recent reason for his absence, so that's presumably why he's sitting again Sunday. Braun has been a beast this season when healthy, hitting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs, but he's had some trouble staying on the field. Alex Presley is in left field Sunday.
May 29 - 11:55 AM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe was told by a National League scout that Ryan Braun is "the hot name out there" on the trade market.

Braun is in the first year of a five-year, $105 million extension, but that no longer looks a deal-killer given that he's batting .351/.424/.583 with nine home runs this season. The scout told Cafardo that he thought the Astros, Cardinals, Red Sox, Phillies, Mets, Giants, and White Sox were potential landing spots for Braun.
