MILWAUKEE -- After aggravating his lingering Achilles' injury and straining his right hip Friday night in a loss to the Pirates, Brewers star left fielder Ryan Braun is out of the lineup for Milwaukee's second game with Pittsburgh on Saturday.Braun left Friday's game in the top of the eighth inning after legging out a single at first base and stealing second. He attempted to stay in the game after the steal but then limped off the field. After the game, Braun said he made a "weird, awkward slide" to avoid tweaking his nagging Achilles', but he aggravated the injury anyway. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Braun would be re-evaluated before Saturday's game but so far he is considered day-to-day.Braun the reigning National League MVP who is hitting .310 with 14 home runs and 36 RBI -- said he refuses to sit out a few games to completely return to health and instead will continue to play hurt. Entering Saturday's contest, he had missed three of Milwaukee's 52 games."I think the danger in trying to play through an injury constantly is it's easy to reinjure it," Braun said. "Your body also compensates, so it's easy to hurt something else. I don't think it's too bad, but it doesn't feel good right now." Norichika Aoki is replacing Braun in the lineup against the Pirates on Saturday.Follow Ryan Kartje on Twitter.
