The latest Kirk Nieuwenhuis MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Brewers | Ryan Braun resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:52:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon Saturday, May 28. OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field. In addition, 2B Scooter Gennett and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis are back in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Presley is 3-for-7 with a home run and two RBI versus Simon in his career but his overall numbers this season (.229-3-10) are nothing to write home about. He should be viewed as a flier option in daily fantasy contests capable of providing salary cap relief.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett, Kirk Nieuwenhuis out

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:18:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP John Lamb Friday, May 27. 3B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and batting second, while OF Keon Broxton is in center field and hitting eighth. 3B Aaron Hill moves over to the keystone.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb doesn't strike fear into his opponents, so Perez, Hill and Broxton could return decent value in daily leagues. Perez has the most upside in the two-hole, and he's hitting .291 (16-for-55) with three home runs and eight RBI. Broxton's main asset is his speed, so he doesn't really fit the daily landscape all that well.

Brewers | Ryan Braun remains out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:16:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, May 21. 2B Scooter Gennett will bat second and play the keystone position, with INF Aaron Hill sliding over to play third base and bat sixth. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat fifth and play center field, OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field and OF Ramon Flores will bat eighth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Presley (6-for-37) and Flores (4-for-19) have both struggled at the plate over the last two weeks and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Gennett, Hill and Nieuwenhuis have fared better but are somewhat risky fantasy options versus deGrom this afternoon.

Brewers | Kirk Nieuwenhuis gets start in center

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:18:50 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is in the lineup Thursday, May 12, starting in center field and batting sixth versus San Diego Padres SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: It's his first start in a week. Nieuwenhuis isn't often featured in the lineup, and with good reason, as he carries a career .233/.311/.389 line. He's never really someone to consider starting in daily formats.

Brewers | Domingo Santana, Jonathan Lucroy return

Sat, 07 May 2016 12:47:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana and C Jonathan Lucroy are back in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Saturday, May 7, while SS Jonathan Villar, 3B Colin Walsh and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis receive the day off. INF Yadiel Rivera will bat eighth and play shortstop, INF Hernan Perez will play third base and hit second and OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Presley and Perez are worthy of consideration as value plays in daily fantasy leagues today. Presley is batting .310 with three home runs and eight RBI in just 29 at-bats, while Perez is 5-for-14 (.357) with two homers and three RBI. Lucroy is also enjoying recent success at the dish, batting .357 with two doubles, a home run and four RBI over the past week.

Brewers | Three Brewers rotating in center

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:49:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF Yadiel Rivera and OF Alex Presley will rotate in center field, according to manager Craig Counsell. All three hit left-handed. "There's not ideal matchup scenarios to play, but we'll just have to figure it out," Counsell said.

Fantasy Tip: None of the three moves the needle in fantasy, but it's a situation to watch if one takes over the bulk of the work.

Brewers | Ryan Braun receiving day off Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 08:29:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio Sunday, April 17. OF Ramon Flores will play left field and bat fifth, while OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in center field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Braun is being given the day off, so he should be removed from all fantasy lineups. The 32-year-old slugger has three home runs and eight RBI through his first 11 games. Flores and Nieuwenhuis should be viewed as nothing more than inexpensive fliers for daily leagues.

Brewers | Kirk Nieuwenhuis playing center field

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 11:15:54 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat sixth and play center field against Houston Astros SP Doug Fister Saturday, April 9.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis will make his first start of the year in center after OFs Ramon Flores and Keon Broxton saw time at the position in the club's first four games. He should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests.
