Phoenix, AZ - The Milwaukee Brewers have scratched OF Ryan Braun from Monday's lineup with mid-back tightness. Braun was scheduled to start in left field and hit third in the order. Instead, Hernan Perez will move from 2B to left field and hit fifth in the order and Jonathan Villar will be inserted in the lineup at second base. 

Braun is coming off a poor series in Colorado over the weekend and is hitting just .222 on the year.
