CHICAGO - Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun was held out the lineup for Thursday's game against the Chicago Cubs with a sore right hand.

According to Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, the 2011 NL MVP has been experiencing a flare-up of a nagging injury.

"Probably the last four, five, six days, it's been bothering him," Roenicke said. "We talked a couple of days ago. If it got better, we'd keep him in there. If not, he's off like this."

Roenicke noticed Braun had altered his approach at the plate.

"Sometimes it flares up and then you see differences in swings, which I saw yesterday," he said.

In 98 games, Braun is hitting .279 with 14 homers and 67 RBIs.

The Brewers also rested third baseman Aramis Ramirez and shortstop Jean Segura against the Cubs and right-handed starter Edwin Jackson.
