Brewers | Ryan Braun remains out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:16:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, May 21. 2B Scooter Gennett will bat second and play the keystone position, with INF Aaron Hill sliding over to play third base and bat sixth. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat fifth and play center field, OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field and OF Ramon Flores will bat eighth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Presley (6-for-37) and Flores (4-for-19) have both struggled at the plate over the last two weeks and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Gennett, Hill and Nieuwenhuis have fared better but are somewhat risky fantasy options versus deGrom this afternoon.

Brewers | Ryan Braun not expected to hit the DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:03:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is not a candidate to be placed on the disabled list, manager Craig Counsell said Friday, May 20. Counsell noted Braun is still nursing a lower back injury and is still considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Braun has been cruising to the tune of a .364/.429/.576 slash line with 21 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI and two stolen bases, and fantasy owners hope he can put the injury behind him and continue mashing at the dish. Missing a few games should be expected with Braun, so don't overreact. When he is in the lineup, the production is solid. Stay tuned for updates.

Brewers | Ryan Braun remains out

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:41:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, May 20. OFs Alex Presley and Keon Broxton are both in the starting lineup. Broxton is hitting seventh and playing center field, while Presley is hitting eighth and playing left field against New York Mets SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Given Braun's lengthy injury history, this could be something that lands him on the DL. Prepare for the worst. With Braun hurting and Domingo Santana on the DL, Broxton and Presley could see regular playing time moving forward. Broxton is the more attractive fantasy option for his speed. He stole 15 bases after being demoted earlier this year and had 39 thefts last year.

Fantasy Tip: Presley is hitting .235 this month, and he doesn't have Jonathan Lucroy behind him today. Pass on him against Jason Hammel.

Brewers | Ryan Braun day-to-day with back soreness

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:47:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is dealing with lower back soreness related to his offseason surgery, and he is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: This plot thickened quickly, and given Braun's lengthy injury history, it might have been optimistic to suggest he was receiving a routine day off Wednesday. Alex Presley projects to see more playing time with Braun out, but Presley is nothing more than low-end own in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Stay tuned for updates, but fantasy owners should at least begin preparations to be without Braun for the immediate future.

Brewers | No Ryan Braun vs. Cubs

Wed, 18 May 2016 13:51:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. OF Alex Presley is starting in left field and batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Braun is off to a scorching start for the Brewers. He has a .364/.429/.576 slash line with 21 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI and two stolen bases, and fantasy owners will gladly trade the odd day of rest to avoid any lengthy injury absences. Sub out Braun in seasonal lineups where you can. Presley is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Brewers | Ryan Braun returns to action

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:40:58 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (wrist) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Braun's wrist injury apparently isn't serious, and the Brewers were being cautious holding him out two games over the weekend. His results this year (.367-7-27) show that Braun really isn't hampered physically, either, which is great news for his owners. He's been one of the better values in the outfield so far in 2016. Keep riding him in all leagues.
