Banged-up Ryan Braun was out of the Brewers' starting lineup Saturday and probably won't play Sunday, either, so manager Ron Roenicke said it's time to get a handle on his star leftfielder's health. "We need to get this thing taken care of so we can get back to worrying about what's going on out on the field and who we have playing, not who we don't have playing," said Roenicke. Braun has been bothered for much of the season with right Achilles tendon tightness, which is worse some days than others. He sat out Thursday night in Los Angeles, then returned to action Friday against Pittsburgh at Miller Park but exited in the seventh inning with the Achilles problem as well as a sore right hip. Those issues arose after Braun slid hard into second base on a stolen base in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Brewers were trailing, 6-2, with two down and Roenicke wasn't sure the steal was worth the consequences of Braun having to leave the game.
