AUG 14, 2014 2:49p ET
According to Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, the 2011 NL MVP has been experiencing a flare-up of a nagging injury.
"Probably the last four, five, six days, it's been bothering him," Roenicke said. "We talked a couple of days ago. If it got better, we'd keep him in there. If not, he's off like this."
Roenicke noticed Braun had altered his approach at the plate.
"Sometimes it flares up and then you see differences in swings, which I saw yesterday," he said.
In 98 games, Braun is hitting .279 with 14 homers and 67 RBI.
