Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta, SS Jean Segura and RP Will Smith avoided arbitration by signing one-year deals Friday, Jan. 15.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta had a miserable season, but he still has a lot of potential as an NL-only starter. Segura quietly had 50 RBIs and 25 steals. He's an upper-middle SS option that could be undervalued. Smith was dynamite in relief and could figure into the closing mix in camp. Keep an eye on the lefty.

Milwaukee Brewers RP Will Smith allowed five earned runs Thursday, July 11. Smith allowed a single earned run in all of April and May. His ERA is 7.72 since Sunday, June 1.
Fantasy Tip: Smith is not worth owning in mixed leagues at this point. In NL-only formats, consider benching him until he turns things around and potentially replacing him on the waiver wire.

Thu, 05 Dec 2013 08:07:07 -0800
The Kansas City Royals acquired OF Norichika Aoki from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for SP Will Smith.
Fantasy Tip: Aoki followed his good rookie season with a solid sophomore campaign in '13. He averaged nine homers, 43.5 RBIs, 80.5 runs and 25 steals in his first two seasons. He may lose some power in Kauffman Stadium, but his steals and run potential make him a solid outfielder to round out your fantasy lineup. Smith is a very good left-handed pitching prospect that could have a chance to crack the Brewers' rotation in 2014. The 23-year-old struck out 100 batters in 89 innings in a breakout season Triple-A last year. He's worth a look in NL-only leagues and could prove to be a solid addition with further development.
