Milwaukee Brewers news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:20:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has scored five times over the same stretch, and after missing time early in the year, his bat is starting to heat up. His career numbers suggest he should only continue to improve on his .245 batting average, and he could make a nice mid-range option at FantasyScore.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, three RBI and two runs scored in a 9-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, July 1, and he has raised his average from .194 to .224 over his last seven games.
Fantasy Tip: Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been rounding back into form after a dreadful start, especially against right-handed pitching. He should make a solid low-priced option at FantasyScore again Thursday when Chad Billingsley takes his 6.75 ERA to the mound for Philadelphia.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:13:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) will likely continue to be overlooked on FantasyScore because of his .208 average (25-for-120), but he does have all four of his homers off right-handers this year, and he is hitting .273 (15-for-55) with three homers since being recalled in early June. He's worth a look as an under-the-radar sleeper play against Harang.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:09:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been very consistent this year (.290-5-21) and has a slash line of .296/.321/.452 with four of his five home runs against right-handed pitching. In the leadoff spot, he has 13 hits in 43 at-bats (.302) with one home run. Against the struggling Harang, it's safe to say that Parra is a nice value pick on FantasyScore.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:06:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a weak FantasyScore catching option today, even against the struggling Harang. Maldonado has 24 hits in 130 at-bats (.185) with three home runs and 12 RBI this season.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 11:33:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has made quite an impression for the Brewers early on (.360-0-2) in just 50 at-bats, but he doesn't have much power to speak of. A matchup against the struggling Harang is nice, but a lineup placement down in the order limits Perez's already dim upside.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura and OF Gerardo Parra were flopped in the lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Tuesday, June 30. Segura is hitting leadoff and Parra has been dropped to sixth against the left-handed pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: Both Segura ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) and Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) have a limited fantasy ceiling tonight against Hamels. Segura is the better option if you're in a gambling mood while hitting atop the order.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:36:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has hit well in his brief time with the Brew Crew (.348 in 46 at-bats), but he doesn't have much power to speak of and should be avoided in daily games going up against Hamels.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:16:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rogers ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is facing a tough matchup in Hamels and has only six hits in 31 at-bats (.194) in the month of June. Rogers is a poor option for FantasyScore gamers tonight.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:34:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lind ($4,300; or 8.6% of cap) is a must-start in FantasyScore while running hot, especially at a mid-level salary.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:33:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Braun ($4,800; or 9.6% of cap) is a must-start in FantasyScore for the remainder of the series at The Vault given his strong career numbers at the stadium.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:33:08 -0700
Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 4-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBIs Monday, June 29, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Lucroy loves Citizens Bank Park, going 22-for-44 (.500) in 11 career games.
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) has struggled for most of the season, but he is a must-start in FantasyScore when playing in Philadelphia due to his strong numbers at the park.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:39:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis' ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) return will spell trouble for Gerardo Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), who could fall into a platoon in left field with the returning Davis. Parra is the one to own for now in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, but keep an eye on Davis if he bounces back after struggling earlier this year.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:12:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could be back with the team as early as this weekend if everything goes according to plan. However, he was hitting just .250 (37-for-148) with five home runs and 16 RBI before his injury, and he could share playing time with Gerardo Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in left field when he returns. Davis should be left to the waiver wire in shallow mixed leagues, but keep him on your radar if he turns things around.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:46:38 -0700
Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta (oblique) threw his first bullpen session Monday, June 29, since landing on the disabled list, and he said it went well. He's hoping to go on a rehab assignment within two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) won't be back in the Brewers' rotation anytime soon. He should be left to the waiver wire in shallow mixed leagues, and there's no guarantee he's given a rotation spot back when he's ready.
