Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sitting vs. Pirates

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:58:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy is having a banner season with 44 runs, 12 home runs, 48 RBI, five stolen bases and a .305/.362/.492 slash line. Sub him out where you can in seasonal leagues and continue to view the backstop as a slam-dunk starter in all formats. He's also likely to receive a fantasy boost with a trade to a contender probable. Maldonado owns a .580 OPS over the past two seasons and is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Thursday. However, he should see an uptick in playing time if Lucroy is traded, which would make Maldonado a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only settings.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks has gone 1-for-5 since being recalled from the minor leagues and should be avoided in all leagues. Maldonado is only hitting .161 this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 08:51:14 -0700

OF Ramon Flores will start in right field and is batting sixth. OF Keon Broxton will start in center field and is batting seventh, while C Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy gets night off

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:33:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (rest) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. C Martin Maldonado is starting in his place behind the plate and batting eighth opposite Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado has typically been one of the more underrated backup catchers in recent years, but that hasn't been the case in 2016. With just two hits in 28 at-bats this season, daily owners can immediately forget about using Maldonado, especially being pitted against a surging pitcher like Wisler. Lucroy should be back in the club's next game.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy out of the lineup

Thu, 19 May 2016 08:16:58 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the lineup Thursday, May 19, with 2B Scooter Gennett hitting third. C Martin Maldonado is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is hitting .167 this week and .233 on the year. You could make a case that he's worth the basement flyer in DFS because of where he's hitting. He has hit .313 in 16 at-bats against Jason Hammel in his career. Maldonado isn't worth consideration in DFS.
