Latest Update Braun blasts 13th home run Wed Jul, 23, 12:55 AM
Can hit anything thrown to him for doubles and homers, while making great contact. Is gifted athletically and boasts a terrific power swing. A prolific producer, he is also fast enough to regularly steal bases.
Flaws: : Is not a top-tier defender (although he has a superb throwing arm), and is a bit raw in the outfield. Does tend to strike out a bit too much. His situation may be clouded by a performance-enhancing drug issue.
Braun ironically homered on the one-year anniversary of his suspension, which was his 13th of the season and his second in four games.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Braun ripped a double and a single off Latos as the Brewers tagged him for four earned runs in seven innings of work. Braun has hits in each of his last nine games, and assuming his back issue is behind him, he could be in for a second-half surge. He hasn't produced like a first-round fantasy pick, but he's still providing in all five categories. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Braun has been hitting very well lately, pushing his average up to near .300 on the season. He does have his work cut out for him at home tonight, although Latos may have some rust, having last pitched on July 11.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Braun is now slashing .350/.395/.625 with seven extra-base hits (1 HR) and eight RBI in the month of July as he continues to bounce back from a poor June (.250 BA). Whether you like Braun or not, he has certainly proved he can still get the job done without the "juice" up to this point in the season as he sits on a .298 average with 12 home runs and 54 RBI, but the days of 30-plus home runs could be a thing of the past for his former MVP.Analyst: Matthew Beck
