Nieuwenhuis is out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game Thursday against Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis is 1-for-26 (.038) in his last 11 games dating back to July 4 and has been ceding playing time lately as a result. The 28-year-old will look to get back on the right track when the Brewers begin a home series against the Cubs on Friday.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Saturday against Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He is 1-for-16 over his last six games, and that slump will result in him beginning Saturday's game on the bench. Ramon Flores will get the start in center field and hit eighth against the Reds.

Nieuwenhuis is not in Friday's lineup for the series opening against St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has started the past two games for the Brewers, but will get a day off Friday. In his place, Keon Broxton will man center field while batting eighth against Jaime Garcia and the Cardinals. Nieuwenhuis will likely be back in the lineup Saturday.

Nieuwenhuis sent 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in Wednesday's 7-0 victory over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old got the Brewers scoring started by blasting a Brock Stewart offering 386 feet to left with Chris Carter and Aaron Hill aboard in the second. It was Nieuwenhuis' third homer in the last five contests, and he's also racked up six RBI over that span.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

With the Brewers facing lefty Scott Kazmir on Thursday, manager Craig Counsell will plug Keon Broxton in center in place of the lefty Nieuwenhuis. Interestingly, Nieuwenhuis has had more success against southpaws (.250 AVG, .950 OPS) than he has against righties (.215 AVG, .684 OPS) this season, so he could be in line for a start when the Brewers face young lefty Julio Urias on Friday.

Nieuwenhuis is back in the Brewers lineup Monday against the Giants, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis was 6-for-15 with three extra-base hits and a stolen base in his past four games before getting a day off at the plate on Sunday. However, he also has seven strikeouts in that span, and while he has shown great plate discipline (14.5 percent walk rate, .340 on-base percentage), Nieuwenhuis's 33.3 percent strikeout rate has limited him to a brutal .228 average.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has made four consecutive starts in center field, but managed to collect base hits in each of those four contests to erase an 0-for-12 slump. He'll get a routine day off against a left-handed pitcher Sunday, however, giving way to Keon Broxton in center. Nieuwenhuis only has 13 plate appearances against left-handed pitching this year, so the move makes sense from a matchup standpoint.

Nieuwenhuis is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has struggled at the plate as of late, getting just two hits in his last 29 at-bats. He'll get a day of rest Wednesday in favor of right-hander Keon Broxton starting in center field and batting seventh against lefty starting pitcher, Jaime Garcia.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has been brutal over his past seven starts, going 1-for-24 with 14 strikeouts, a stretch which has dropped his batting average 55 points. He still looks to be locked in as the Brewers' primary center fielder, but he'll cede starting duties to Keon Broxton on Sunday with a left-hander in Brandon Finnegan on the mound for the opposition.
