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.

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 09:55:29 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Sunday, April 24. C Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado has gone hitless in 10 at-bats this season and should not be used in any leagues.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett, Jonathan Lucroy out

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 10:13:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett and C Jonathan Lucroy are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, April 10. C Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and is batting sixth, while SS Yadiel Rivera will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Maldonado nor Rivera have received many plate appearances this season and should be avoided in all mixed leagues. They could be used in NL-only leagues, but owners in those leagues may be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Brewers | Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy absent

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 15:04:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) and C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remain out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Domingo Santana is starting in right field and hitting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha, while C Martin Maldonado is catching and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), a piece in the Carlos Gomez trade, has been a bright spot for Milwaukee, and he continues to hit since being called up. He remains attractive as a value pick even in a tougher matchup. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be avoided in daily contests.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sidelined

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 13:59:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remains sidelined due to a concussion. C Martin Maldonado is hitting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a likely candidate to be shut down for the rest of the year if his concussion issues don't abate, so stay tuned. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) does have two hits in four at-bats against Arrieta, so he may be worth the low-cost flier in FantasyScore.
