Ryan Braun and the Milwaukee Brewers have dealt with a lot over the last several months. Tuesday brought about another bump in the road for Braun.

Braun was scratched from the lineup on Tuesday afternoon after experiencing tightness in his groin. 

The Brewers are likely being cautious with Braun, but if this injury lingers it certainly won't do Braun any good as he attempts to find his swing this spring.

He has one hit in 17 at bats and has struck out five times. Braun was trying to play back-to-back games for only the second time this spring. The last time he did was on March 8th and March 9th. 

Many will wonder if his horrific spring is related to his PED scandal. 

Perhaps Braun has been unable to find a rhythm playing in only a handful of games. If there were not extenuating circumstances, a dreadful spring would not be much of a concern.

With Braun however, a fallout from a long offseason fighting a PED suspension might have taken him out of his game.

Hopefully for the Brewers, Braun is back on the field sooner rather than later.
