Ryan Braun (calf, wrist) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.
It's the third straight missed start for Braun, who is battling a nagging left calf issue in addition to a sore wrist. Hernan Perez is in left field. The Brewers also have Brett Phillips in center field over Keon Broxton. RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant:
He may go overlooked given the dearth of suitable pitching options on tonight's slate, but Aaron Nola absolutely deserves a look as a GPP play as a home favorite against the Brewers. If Nola can keep the two potent lefties - Thames and Shaw - at bay, he'll have a great shot at a dominating performance. He's struck out at least six in every start he's made since the end of May, and owns a 10.1 K/9 rate against RH bats on the year. The Brewers have the third highest K% against RHP in the league.
