Brewers | Jimmy Nelson does it with arm, bat

Mon, 02 May 2016 22:32:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson allowed two runs and four hits over seven innings in a win Monday, May 2, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and he also had a pair of singles, including an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson improved to 4-2 with a 3.05 ERA after the quality start, his fourth in six outings this season. He has emerged as a surprising must-start in all NL-only fantasy leagues and some mixed formats as well. His price tag is rising in DFS, but he remains a pretty solid value still.

Brewers | Ryan Braun battling soreness

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:45:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is dealing with what manager Craig Counsell termed "general soreness," after the game Monday, May 2, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He said Braun may or may not play in the game Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in daily formats, and those in DFS play, might want to steer clear of Braun until he can officially play again and prove his health in one full game without any setbacks or lingering effects of his soreness.

Brewers | Domingo Santana to be re-evaluated

Mon, 02 May 2016 21:44:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) developed some tightness behind his shoulder in the area of his latissimus muscle Monday, May 2, according to manager Craig Counsell. Santana will be re-evaluated Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: With Santana sidelined Monday, Alex Presley started and was hitless in four at-bats. He might see regular duty if Santana is forced to the shelf, but that remains to be seen at the moment.

Brewers | Domingo Santana scratched

Mon, 02 May 2016 16:06:27 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) was scratched from the starting lineup with right shoulder tightness Monday, May 2. OF Alex Presley is now starting in right field and is hitting in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Get Santana out of all daily lineups as quickly as possible. The Brewers are facing soft-tossing Jered Weaver and the Angels Monday night, so Presley could be a low-end deep sleeper worth pursuing in DFS tonight. After all, Presley is 4-for-13 with a homer in limited action for the Brew Crew to start the year, and he's in a favorable lineup spot.

Brewers | Chris Carter has his way with Miami

Sun, 01 May 2016 15:35:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter ended a three-game hitless drought in a big way on Sunday, May 1, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs, three RBI and three runs scored en route to a 14-5 rout of the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Consistency and a high batting average have never been Carter's calling cards, so owners should look to sell high pretty soon on one of the streakier power hitters in the game. With that said, he's been a solid four-category contributor so far, batting .278 with seven home runs, 18 RBI and 15 runs scored. He should remain in lineups against Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels at home on Monday.

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.

Brewers | Colin Walsh in lineup Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:57:10 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Colin Walsh will bat sixth and play third base against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Saturday, April 30. INF Aaron Hill, who played the hot corner Friday, April 29, will slide over to second base Saturday and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Walsh is 2-for-20 at the plate with eight strikeouts but has walked nine times this year, while Hill is batting just .164 with seven RBI through 61 at-bats. Both players should be avoided in all fantasy formats tonight.

Brewers | Taylor Jungmann sent down

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 11:31:59 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann was optioned to the minors Friday, April 29. In a corresponding move, RP David Goforth was called up.

Fantasy Tip: Jungmann struggled mightily in five starts, going 0-4 with a 9.15 ERA while walking 13 and striking out 13 in 20 2/3 innings. He must improve his control before he'll be fantasy relevant and receive another shot at the rotation. Goforth isn't a starter, so stay tuned for who Milwaukee will use to fill the rotation next week.

Brewers | Jonathan Villar shines in loss

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 16:28:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jonathan Villar went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a walk Thursday, April 28, against the Chicago Cubs. He also stole three bases.

Fantasy Tip: With Scooter Gennett landing on the disabled list, Villar's impact could potentially stretch a bit further within the fantasy landscape. That has much to do with him being bumped up in the batting order, as he's now hit in the leadoff spot in two straight games. Owners in deep leagues should give him a look, especially if he becomes more aggressive on the basepaths like he was Thursday afternoon.

Brewers | Taylor Jungmann hit hard again

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 15:58:48 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his start Thursday, April 28, opposite the Chicago Cubs. He gave up five runs on six hits and three walks, while striking out just two. With the loss, he dropped to 0-4 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: It has not been a pleasant sophomore campaign for Jungmann through the first month. In five starts, he pitched past the fifth inning just once, while surrendering four runs or more in three of them. If this continues, he could be demoted, but luckily for him, the Brewers don't exactly have much starting pitching depth to replace him. As a result, Jungmann will more likely have to work through his struggles at the major league level, which could result in more growing pains. He's simply not someone to start right now outside of deep NL-only leagues.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett to DL

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:27:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right oblique tightness Thursday, April 28. INF Hernan Perez was recalled from Class AAA Colorado Springs. SP Matt Garza (lat) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett popped four homers in the early going, but he doesn't hold the kind of value to stash him in mixed leagues. Perez isn't worth more than a possible DFS flyer in good matchups.

Brewers | Two Brewers sit Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:13:00 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) and OF Domingo Santana are out of the lineup Thursday, April 28. SS Jonathan Villar is leading off, OF Alex Presley is second and 2B Yadiel Rivera hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: None of the three are daily options at face value. Add in the fact that they're facing Jake Arrieta, the hottest pitcher in baseball for the last calendar year, and pass on those three.

Brewers | Taylor Jungmann to work Thursday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 19:12:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann will start the game Thursday, April 28, against the Chicago Cubs after his outing Wednesday, April 27, was postponed due to rain.

Fantasy Tip: Jungmann will still have to face the red-hot Jake Arrieta. The Brewers are 1-8 in Jungmann's past nine outings, and 0-9 in his past nine starts on the road. Avoid Jungmann in DFS and all fantasy formats with a terrible matchup.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett leaves team

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:31:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) returned to Milwaukee to be examined by the team physician, and the severity of his injury will be announced following the tests.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for an official announcement concerning Gennett's injury. He is a fringe own in the majority of seasonal leagues, but his strong start had his fantasy value on the rise. Yadiel Rivera is a candidate to see the majority of starts at the keystone with Gennett out, but Rivera has just 39 plate appearances at the highest level and should be viewed as a desperation option in all fantasy formats.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out with oblique injury

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:39:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. SS Yadiel Rivera is starting at second base and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is off to an impressive start with 14 runs and a .361 on-base percentage, and he has emerged as a viable option in deep mixed leagues. Check back for updates on his status. Rivera should be viewed as a non-factor in all fantasy formats against Arrieta Wednesday.
