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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun is not in Thursday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Braun is batting .279 with 10 homers and 37 RBI. The Brewers will be absent a lot of offense with Braun and catcher Jonathon LuCroy also sitting. Arizona starter Chase Anderson (5-1, 3.21 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) gets a much weaker lineup to face.
