Ryan Braun (thumb) remains out of Brewers lineup Friday

Ryan Braun missed his second straight game on Friday night after getting cryotherapy on his right thumb earlier this week.

Fantasy Impact

Braun has had this procedure performed before and was only expected to miss a couple of games so we could see him in the lineup as soon as Saturday when the Brewers take the field against the Cardinals. Watch the starting lineups when they come out and plug Braun into fantasy lineups when he is available.

It was a quiet afternoon for the bats from both teams as Braun saw his modest five-game hitting streak snapped.

Ryan Braun crushes two home runs, drives in five Friday

Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in the Brewers' 12-4 win over the Phillies Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Braun was hitting just .133 in June before this game, but woke up big time in this blowout. His first home run came on a lollipop curveball from starter Vince Velasquez in the first, and his second came off reliever Mark Leiter Jr. in the fourth. The veteran slugger is now hitting .236 with eight home runs on the year.

Ryan Braun strikes out twice on Tuesday

Ryan Braun went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Indians and Corey Kluber on Tuesday during a 3-2 loss.

Fantasy Impact

Braun continues to have some struggles at the plate this season with a .229 batting average and a 22.3% strikeout rate. He has recently been dropped to fifth in the lineup with the emergence of Jesus Aguilar. Braun should only be used as a spot starter in standard fantasy leagues right now.
