Brewers slugger Ryan Braun starting against Reds
Braun was activated Monday after going on the DL on June 10 and missing 21 games. He is hitting .304 with nine homers -- seven of which came in April -- and 36 RBIs.
Braun's name surfaced in documents linked to the Biogenesis clinic in Miami but he has denied using performance-enhancing drugs. Braun has said his name was in those documents only because his attorneys used clinic operator Tony Bosch as a consultant when Braun successfully appealed a 50-game suspension after testing positive for elevated testosterone levels in October 2011.
Braun was unavailable for comment before Tuesday night's game.
