Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) and C Jonathan Lucroy (rest) are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 9, against the Philadelphia Phillies. SS Jean Segura is batting second, and 2B Scooter Gennett is hitting third.
Fantasy Tip: This makes back-to-back missed games for Braun. Fantasy owners should be considering adding an additional outfielder to platoon with Braun when he isn't starting, if you haven't done so already. Catchers rarely start day games after starting the night before, so there is no concern for Lucroy going forward.

The Milwaukee Brewers won't have OF Ryan Braun, C Jonathan Lucroy or 3B Aramis Ramirez in the lineup Wednesday, June 25, following their 16-inning game Tuesday, June 24.
Fantasy Tip: It had been reported that they wanted to rest the struggling Braun anyway. Get these three out of your daily lineups.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is in the second spot in the lineup Tuesday, June 24. C Jonathan Lucroy is hitting third.
Fantasy Tip: Braun has been in the two-hole for three straight games in which he has played. His RBI potential could suffer, but two-hitters generally see more fastballs. More fastballs could lead to more leaving the park. Lucroy benefits with Braun's perennial on-base excellence ahead of him in the order.
