Brewers | Ryan Braun not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:09:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 11. OF Shane Peterson is in Braun's place.

Fantasy Tip: No reason was given for the absence of Braun ($5,800, 11.6% of cap), but it may just be a normal night off. Still, Braun is hitting .306 against the Chicago Cubs this season, so this is a bit mysterious. Keep an eye on whether there is more to this.

Brewers | Shane Peterson moved to leadoff spot

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 07:57:39 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) boasts a .313/.378/.400 slash line over 129 plate appearances this season, and he is riding an 11-for-29 stretch with a .972 OPS over his past nine games. FantasyScore players have a nice value on their hands, but don't overlook how strong Lackey ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has been of late.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sitting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:21:42 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago Cubs. C Martin Maldonado will start behind the plate and hit eighth in the order against RHP Kyle Hendricks, while OF Shane Peterson will hit second and start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting below .200 against both right and left pitching this season, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore. Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 with two singles and a walk Friday, and he'll have some upside while offering cap relief.

Brewers | Shane Peterson could bump up

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:07:45 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Shane Peterson could serve as the primary reserve outfielder if OF Gerardo Parra is traded in the next few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($1,800; or 3.6% of cap) is only worth a look if and when he draws a start, especially against left-handed pitching. He is 7-for-13 (.538) so far against southpaws.

Brewers | Ryan Braun out of the lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:30:59 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Saturday, June 27. OF Gerardo Parra will start in right field and is batting first, while OF Shane Peterson is starting in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should be back soon. Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last 10 games, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:25:16 -0700

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:41:22 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Shane Peterson is starting in left field and hitting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), despite a .300 average (15-for-50) is one to avoid in daily games today against Sale, the most overpowering lefty in the American League.
