Braun again out with sore neck

Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun was again out of the lineup as the Brewers took on St. Louis yesterday, for a second straight game.

Braun has been dealing with a sore neck and the Brewers’ best hitter also has been bothered by soreness in his lower back and right wrist this season.

In other injury news for Milwaukee, left-handed pitcher Will Smith was slated to return to Milwaukee last night from his rehab stint in the minors as he comes back from an injury to his right knee.

He could be activated on Thursday when the team opens a four-game series in Philadelphia.
