Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was scratched from
last night’s lineup due to neck spasms, according to Tom Haudricourt of The
#Brewers scratch Ryan Braun with neck spasms that began during batting practice. Kris Davis gets first major league start.

Braun began experiencing the spasms during batting practice.
Kris Davis got his first major league start in place of Braun.
It’s not clear if Braun was available to pinch-hit, but it
wouldn’t appear so since he wasn’t used last night in what was a close game.
Milwaukee will likely take things slow with the slugger, so not to rush him
back and have him sidelined for a more significant period of time.
Prior to experiencing the spasms, Braun was off to a good
start this season. He’s hit a double and home run and drove in four runs over
the first three games of the new season.
