Ryan Braun left last night’s game after aggravating a lingering groin injury and as expected he’s not in the Brewers’ lineup for today’s game.

Milwaukee has Thursday off, so this gives Braun some extra rest before potentially rejoining the lineup Friday in Cincinnati for what’s the start of 12 games in 12 days.

Of course, he’s no sure thing to be ready by then. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Braun “has been receiving treatment for that ailment since it sidelined him a couple of games in spring training.”

Braun explained that he’s “had it all year, off and on” and “I try to manage as best I can.”

Braun started 84 of the Brewers’ first 90 games, hitting .309 with a .394 on-base percentage and .608 slugging percentage to nearly duplicate his MVP-winning .397 on-base percentage and .597 slugging percentage from last season.

        Wonder if Braun will claim he mishandled his groin too? Or not claim it, but allege it gutless as he is.

        Yes. Ryan Braun is gutless. While the anonymous message board poster is an all-powerful, clairvoyant sage. At least, till the end of summer vacation.
