While the Milwaukee Brewers have welcomed back Jonathan Lucroy to the lineup on Friday, they will still be without outfielder Ryan Braun. It marks the third straight game Braun has missed, though there has been minimal trade talk about Braun this year so it seems it is not lessening any chance of a deal.
Braun has felt tightness in his side the last several days when trying to warm up and been scratched all three games because of it. While there is still some uncertainty about the specific type of injury, Braun is day-to-day for now. Jake Elmore will take Braun's spot in the lineup today.
