Milwaukee Brewers INF-OF Elian Herrera was supposed to be a paternity list fill-in for 1B Lyle Overbay, but then OF Logan Schafer (hamstring) hit the 15-day disabled list. Now, OF Carlos Gomez and C Martin Maldonado face potential suspensions, meaning Herrera stands to see time as the team's starting center fielder and emergency catcher. "If suspensions come down, the catching part is going to be big. Center (field) is big, too. We don't have anybody else who can play center. (OF Ryan Braun) is really our backup center fielder if we don't have Gomez or Herrera here," manager Ron Roenicke said.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Logan Schafer spent the offseason rebuilding his strength and balance, and he said Tuesday, Feb. 18, that he feels re-energized and ready for spring training. "I spent a lot of time last year trying to figure out what I can do better, what I did OK, what I can improve on," Schafer said. "A lot of that has to do with the mentality and just realizing I'm a damn good ball player and just letting myself be one. That's a big part of it."
Fantasy Tip: Schafer saw an increased role at times last season with Ryan Braun out due to suspension, but this year Schafer is likely to be a fourth outfielder. He is best left to fantasy owners in deeper NL-only leagues.

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke mentioned OFs Logan Schafer, Khris Davis and Caleb Gindl as candidates to take over in left field with OF Ryan Braun lost for the rest of the season. SS Jean Segura will bat in Braun's usual third spot in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Schafer is your best bet if you're looking for some speed in cavernous mixed formats. He'll probably lose some playing time to Gindl and Davis, however, so he may be best suited for NL-only universes.

The Milwaukee Brewers recalled OF Khris Davis from the minors Tuesday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: Davis takes the roster spot of the suspended Ryan Braun and will serve as outfield depth. Logan Schafer will receive most of the playing time in left field with Braun out for the rest of the season.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun has been suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season without pay for violations of baseball's drug program. Braun has accepted the penalty and will not appeal the suspension. Braun's suspension will take place immediately, meaning he'll be suspended for the final 65 games of the season.
Fantasy Tip: This comes as a huge surprise, as many believed any of the possible suspensions tied to MLB's Biogenesis investigation wouldn't take effect until the 2014 season. Braun is admitting his guilt by passing up the appeals process and cutting a deal with the league. This will be a huge to all of his owners, and you can cut him in all single-year formats.
Logan Schafer will benefit from Braun's suspension the most; he's expected to fill in as the starting left fielder now. Consider adding him in deep mixed leagues, especially if you had Braun on your roster.
