Braun isn't in the lineup for Sunday's season finale against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

It seems kind of odd that Braun would sit out the season finale but no injury label has surfaced to this point. Jake Elmore will replace him in left field Sunday, batting eighth for the Brewers.

Braun (wrist) is back in Wednesday's lineup, hitting third and manning left field against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

He sat out Tuesday with a sore wrist, but it was a minor ailment and he's back in the three hole against Cole Hamels and the Rangers. Braun has had his best offensive season since 2012 (135 wRC+), and is looking like the type of player who could continue to age quite well, although it's fair to wonder how many seasons with double-digit stolen bases the 32-year-old outfielder has left.

Braun is out of Tuesday's lineup with a wrist injury, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun is experiencing wrist soreness, which is why the Brewers decided to start Michael Reed in left field Tuesday evening. Fortunately for Milwaukee, Braun is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday. However, consider him day-to-day until then.

Braun is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Braun started the past five games, but with the Brewers eliminated from playoff contention, the Brewers will give their star a day off to evaluate younger options. Michael Reed will take over in left field to fill the void.

Braun (personal) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Pirates, batting third and playing left field.

EDGE Analysis

Braun took the past two games off to attend to the birth of his son, but the outfielder is back with the team Thursday and ready to play again. The 32-year-old will likely slot in as the starting left fielder for the remainder of the season, barring any extraneous circumstances.

Braun is not in Wednesday's lineup as he is still with his wife and newborn son.

EDGE Analysis

His wife gave birth to the couple's son Tuesday and he is understandably taking an extra day to be with his family as the Brewers are playing out the string. Domingo Santana is starting in left field and hitting cleanup Wednesday. It seems likely that Braun will be back in the fold Thursday against the Pirates.

Braun is not with the team because he is attending to the birth of his second child, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As was speculated, Braun will be away from the team for a bit while he welcomes his new son into the world. It's unclear how much time he'll miss, but it's good to hear that there is no injury concern for the veteran outfielder.

Braun is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

This is the second game in a row that Braun will miss, although there have been no reports of an injury. That being said, the outfielder's wife is reportedly expecting the couple's second child this week, so that could be playing a part in his absence. No matter the case, Jake Elmore will fill in for Braun in left field for the evening.

Braun went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a pair of two-run homers in Saturday's 11-3 thrashing of the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger has found long-ball success against Cubs pitching in the first two games of the series and how has a modest three-game hitting streak. Braun cut into an early 3-0 deficit with a fourth-inning single that plated Scooter Gennett and then drove in his teammate again with a 404-foot two-run shot in the sixth that gave the Brewers a 4-3 lead. He came back in the eighth with his second homer of the game, bringing Gennett home a third time. Braun now has three multi-RBI outings in September, and his 32 homers are his best total in that category since he smacked 41 in 2012.
