Ryan Braun was a late scratch from today’s game with a strained groin and manager Ron Roenicke revealed that the reigning MVP has been playing through the injury for several weeks.

Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that the injury “flared up yesterday after Braun started against the Rangers.”

Braun is expected to sit out tomorrow as well and the Brewers have Thursday off, so he won’t be back in the lineup before Friday.

Braun, whose 50-game suspension was overturned last month, has played at least 150 games in each of his four full seasons in the majors.
