Brewers | Elian Herrera proving useful

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:52:14 -0700

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.

Brewers | Lyle Overbay, Mark Reynolds likely to platoon

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 09:06:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1Bs Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds will likely platoon at first base to start the year, as the team elected to go with veterans at the position over 1B Juan Francisco. Overbay had three hits Sunday, March 23, but he was hitting just .114 this spring before the game.

Fantasy Tip: A platoon here basically wipes out any small value either player would have on his own. Reynolds is probably slightly more valuable because of his power potential, but he won't be seeing as many at-bats if it's a straight righty-lefty platoon.

Brewers | Juan Francisco's locker empty

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 00:55:05 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers may be in the process of parting with 1B Juan Francisco, which would give 1B Mark Reynolds and 1B Lyle Overbay the edge at first base this season. Francisco's locker has been cleared out, a possible sign that the Brewers have designated Francisco for assignment. No official announcement has been made.

Brewers | Mark Reynolds in lead for 1B job

Mon, 17 Mar 2014 15:08:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mark Reynolds has a leg up in the first base competition this spring partly because of his experience in the big leagues. He's hitting only .161 with a double and five RBIs this spring, but Reynolds isn't concerned that he's not driving the ball out of the park just yet. 1Bs Lyle Overbay and Juan Francisco are the other two candidates for first base. Both Reynolds and Overbay have out clauses in their contracts if they aren't signed to the roster by March 24 and March 22, respectively, and Francisco is out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is a decent target on the cheap in NL-only leagues if you're looking for some power late in your draft. You'll have to put up with terrible contact rates and a low BA, though.
