Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy will not start against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett Saturday, June 11. C Martin Maldonado will play behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado is just 4-for-37 at the plate and is not a recommended fantasy option today. DFS players looking for salary cap relief should be able to find plenty of low-priced catchers who have performed better this year.

Brewers | Milwaukee resting four starters

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

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett, C Jonathan Lucroy, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis and OF Alex Presley are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday, June 1. 2B Aaron Hill will start at second base, while 3B Hernan Perez will start at third base and is batting second. 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.

Fantasy Tip: Perez and Flores have each hit over .300 over the last seven days and should have some value in some daily fantasy leagues. Broxton and Maldonado have struggled at the plate this season and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

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.

Brewers | Chris Carter takes a seat

Sat, 14 May 2016 14:19:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter is out of the lineup Saturday, May 14, with C Jonathan Lucroy shifting to first base and hitting cleanup. C Martin Maldonado is hitting eighth and squatting behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy is an obvious consideration daily. Maldonado is hitting just .095 on the season, and he's not a good start against Luis Perdomo.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy, Aaron Hill resting

Mon, 09 May 2016 11:35:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy and 3B Aaron Hill are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 9. C Martin Maldonado is behind the plate and is batting seventh, while 3B Colin Walsh is at the hot corner and is hitting sixth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado (.053) and Walsh (.108) haven't done squat at the dish this year and are in for a tough matchup in Hernandez. The chances are very low that either one of them will return value in daily games.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy has Friday off

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:38:10 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the lineup Friday, May 6, with C Martin Maldonado hitting eighth. 1B Chris Carter moved up to hit cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado has had a miserable year and isn't worth starting. Carter has been a man possessed with five homers in the last seven days. He's a high-end start against Tim Adleman.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy, Ramon Flores out Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:39:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy and OF Ramon Flores are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Sunday, May 1. C Martin Maldonado will start behind the plate and bat eighth, while OF Kirk Niewenhuis plays center field and bats fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado is hitless through his first 14 at-bats, so he can be ignored from a fantasy standpoint. On the other hand, Nieuwenhuis has three extra-base hits and seven RBI through 34 at-bats and is positioned in a favorable spot in the batting order, so he's worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy games.
