Brewers OF Ryan Braun Out of Lineup for First Game of Doubleheader

August 16th, 2016

While the Milwaukee Brewers have a double header on tap today, it will be just a routine one-game day for outfielder Ryan Braun. He is out of the lineup for the first game of Milwaukee's doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs, likely just a routine game of rest.

Braun has had one of the hottest bats in baseball since the second half began. He holds a .382 batting average, .497 wOBA, 213 wRC+, nine home runs and 21 RBIs since July 15. He should be back in the lineup for the second game of the double header tonight against Jason Hammel.
