Description: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is a career .311 hitter, but just a .100 hitter (2-for-20 with six strikeouts) against Reds right-hander Mat Latos.
Insight: Braun (.298, 12 HR, 54 RBI) hasn't been able to match the production of his "Biogenesis Years," but he's still been productive this season. This matchup should obviously be avoided.

Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun left the game in the second inning of Saturday's contest against the Cincinntai due to lower back spasms and is not in Sunday's starting lineup.
Insight: No surprise here. Braun just had an eight-game hitting streak snapped Friday night. He's batting .289 with 11 HR and 49 RBI. Not exactly up to his previous standards, but not horrible. Logan Schafer (.176) is in right field Sunday in Braun's place, but he has no fantasy value.

Description: Milwaukee right fielder Ryan Braun (ankle) is in the lineup Monday against Washington, according to Adam McCalvy of mlb.com.

He has hit just .217 with two home runs and 20 Ks over 83 at-bats in June and is also hitting just .258 with a .710 OPS against left-handers this season, so he isn't a great play against Gio Gonzalez Monday.
