Braun’s 2018 season has been mostly disappointing, filled with multiple trips to and from the 10-day disabled list and a career-worst .238/.285/.431 slash line. But has the outfielder found his swing again? Braun is riding a season-long six-game hitting streak, dating back to July 26. In that span, he’s collected one double, one homer, five RBI and a walk. If Braun can find his productivity once again, it will be a big bonus to a Brewers lineup that has added All-Star bats in Jonathan Schoop and Mike Moustakas in the last week.
Christian Yelich, Brewers outfielder (⬆ UP)
Yelich, who was the headliner of last week’s stock report, has been absolutely ridiculous since the All-Star break. In 50 at-bats, Yelich has collected 25 hits -- not to mention a .500/.519/.940 slash line, six doubles, two triples, four homers, 14 RBI and a stolen base. Forget his first All-Star appearance this summer, No. 22 might be headed for his first career MVP award.

Mike Pettine, Packers defensive coordinator (⬇ DOWN)
Things became tougher for Pettine at training camp. Starting inside linebacker Jake Ryan was ruled out for the season Wednesday with a torn ACL, and Kentrell Brice is missing practice with an injured ankle. Luckily, Brice avoided a drastic injury, but finding a replacement for Ryan among a batch of rookies (Oren Burks, Naashon Hughes, Greer Martini) will be no easy task.
Jesus Aguilar, Brewers first baseman (⬇ DOWN)
Since the All-Star break, Aguilar is hitting .135/.200/.243 with one double, one home run and 10 strikeouts in 37 at-bats. Don’t worry, we still believe in Jesus.
