MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun is out again due to spasms on the right side of his neck.

Braun says he is feeling "a little better" and is hoping to get back on the field as soon as possible. The injury-riddled Brewers had lost four in a row heading into Sunday's game against Arizona.

Braun took batting practice Friday, but was scratched from the lineup and replaced by Khris Davis. He missed Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Logan Schafer got the start in left for the finale of Milwaukee's season-opening, six-game homestand.

The Brewers put third baseman Aramis Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a sprained left knee, but they don't think Braun will need time on the DL to recover.
