Braun (ribs) isn't in Saturday's starting lineup against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Braun exited Wednesday's contest against the Cubs due to right rib cage tightness. While he managed to pinch hit in the ninth inning of Friday's game, he still doesn't appear to be at 100 percent, so Milwaukee will keep him on the bench as a precaution. Braun figures to be available to pinch hit if necessary.

Braun (ribs) is not in the lineup against the Cardinals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Braun was forced to leave Wednesday's game due to right rib cage tightness and will need a little more time off after benefiting from a scheduled off day Thursday. At this point, it's unclear as to when he will return, but the fact that he travelled with the team to St. Louis is a good sign. Consider him day-to-day ahead of Saturday's affair.

Manager Craig Counsell said Braun (ribs) is day-to-day, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Braun exited Wednesday's game against the Cubs in the fifth inning with right rib cage tightness, and injury he picked up in the third inning while attempting to make a sliding catch. He's set to travel with the team to St. Louis, a positive sign that the injury isn't anything overly serious.

Braun left Wednesday's game against the Cubs in the fifth inning with right rib cage tightness.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers have an off day Thursday, but are not scheduled to face a left-handed starter this week or next week, so it would probably be an opportune time to put Braun on the disabled list if the injury isn't extremely minor. Hernan Perez replaced Braun, but Eric Thames figures to be the primary beneficiary of his absence.

Braun went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Braun had a pair of two-run homers off Jose Quintana as he is now 13-for-34 with three home runs and three doubles in August. The 34-year-old still has an uninspiring .255/.304/.466 slash line for the season, but entering Tuesday the veteran outfielder did have the best line-drive rate of his career at 29 percent. He conversely had a career-low BABIP of .279, which suggests there is some room for improvement.

Braun went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Braun took left-hander Tyler Anderson deep in the third inning for his 12th home run of the season. While he now has two home runs in his last five starts, Saturday's effort marked his first multi-hit game since June 27, resulting in a .243/.292/.441 line in 272 at-bats this season. Both his performance and at-bats have been inconsistent, making it difficult to trust him down the stretch in shallower formats.

Braun is not in the lineup Thursday for the third day in a row, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

EDGE Analysis

Braun is seemingly healthy after recovering from a back injury, but either for maintenance purposes or simply because the Brewers have too many quality players at the positions he plays, he has not started a game since Monday.

Braun is not in the lineup against Washington on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Braun will remain on the bench for a second straight day as manager Craig Counsell trots out an outfield of Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain and Eric Thames for the series finale. Look for Braun to come off the bench more often now that the Brewers are getting back to full health.

Braun is not starting Tuesday against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Both Jesus Aguilar and Eric Thames returned from hamstring injuries Tuesday, creating a playing-time crunch in Milwaukee. It remains to be seen whether or not Braun will be an everyday player with both of them healthy. The veteran has a disappointing .229/.275/.416 line on the season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him in a part-time role.

Braun (back) was reinstated from the disabled list Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Braun ended up missing just shy of two weeks with a back strain. A series of injuries have sapped the 34-year-old's productivity this season, resulting in a disappointing .235/.283/.427 slash line. Jacob Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs in a corresponding move.
