Ryan Braun homers for second straight night

After starting just one game over the last four days due to a sore calf, Ryan Bruan returned to the starting lineup in style going 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs during an 8-0 victory over the Marlins on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

That makes back-to-back games with a long ball for Braun, who hit a pinch-hit homer on Thursday and brings his season total up to five homers. With Christian Yelich's return from the DL and Braun's return to the starting lineup, the Brewers' offense is back at full strength and it shows with 20 runs over the last two games. Keep using Braun in all fantasy leagues and consider a Brewers' stack in DFS while they're hot and facing the Marlins this weekend.

Ryan Braun (calf) hits three-run pinch-hit homer

Ryan Braun, who remained out of the starting lineup again on Thursday due to calf tightness, came on to pinch-hit in the sixth inning an delivered a three-run shot during a seven-run inning in the Brewers 12-3 win.

Fantasy Impact

The homer also supplied Braun with his 1,000 career RBI. Braun is hopeful to return to the starting lineup for Friday's game. If he is in the Brewers' starting lineup then he should be in your fantasy starting lineup.

Ryan Braun collects two hits in return to lineup

Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 including a double on Tuesday during the Brewers' 2-0 victory over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Braun returned to the lineup on Tuesday after just pinch-hitting the last couple of games due to some back tightness. Braun could get another day off on Wednesday in an afternoon tilt against the Reds. The Brewers will continue to manage Braun's playing time along with any nagging injury or soreness he has this season. While missing a few days here and there is better than a DL stint for the Brewers, it does not help fantasy owners. If you draft Braun this is what you signed up for at this stage of his career.

Ryan Braun (back) returns to the lineup on Tuesday

Ryan Braun is in the Brewers' lineup against the Reds on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Braun missed a few days with back tightness, but the team continually downplayed the injury. Braun's age and general injury history always makes it likely that he'll miss a handful of games, but fantasy owners should feel comfortable returning him to their lineups.

Ryan Braun leaves game on Saturday with back tightness

Ryan Braun exited Saturday's game against the Mets in the fifth inning due to back tightness. The veteran outfielder looked fine when he singled and stole a base earlier in the frame, but he was promptly replaced by Hernan Perez in left field for the bottom half of the fifth. It

Fantasy Impact

The Brewers have not said how serious this is. Braun has had back issues in the past so the team may be cautious. Keep an eye on updates for Braun and consider him day to day.
