Brewers | Milwaukee lands another prospect

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:58:58 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Gerardo Parra was traded to the Baltimore Orioles Friday, July 31, in exchange for SP Zach Davies.

Fantasy Tip: With Parra moving out of Milwaukee, plenty of opportunities open up in the Brewers outfield, especially since Carlos Gomez is gone, too. Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is once again assured of an everyday role in left field, while Shane Peterson and Logan Schafer could split time in center field. Domingo Santana is another option for Milwaukee.

Brewers | Milwaukee re-calls two

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:52:24 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers will re-call OF Logan Schafer and 2B Elian Herrera from Class AAA Colorado Springs Friday, July 31, to fill the roster spots of OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers who were traded to the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer hit for a .182 batting average with zero home runs in 40 plate appearances in the major leagues this season, while Herrera hit .212 with four home runs. Neither will deserve much FantasyScore consideration.

Brewers | Milwaukee deals Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:56:11 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers dealt OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros Thursday, July 30, and received prospects OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser.

Fantasy Tip: Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should start every day in the outfield, and he'll be worth grabbing in deeper mixed leagues, and he can be used against right-handed pitching on FantasyScore. Wily Peralta ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will move into Fiers' rotation spot, he allowed just two earned runs over six innings in his return from the disabled list, and he can be used depending on his matchup.

Brewers | MIL denies Carlos Gomez hip issue

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:18:20 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (hip) was the centerpiece of a deal that fell apart with the New York Mets due to an alleged hip issue. Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and Gomez's agent, Scott Boras, denied Gomez had an issue with his hip. According to a source, the Mets wanted the Brewers to take OF Juan Lagares in the deal, but the Brewers declined because Lagares has an elbow issue. Lagares also has a four-year, $23 million extension that kicks in next year, and the Brewers didn't want to pick up the money. The Mets swapped in SS Wilmer Flores in the deal and wanted a draft pick, which the Brewers declined. The Brewers were also asked to include cash in the deal and declined. After the Brewers declined to include cash in the deal, the Mets called off the deal because of Gomez's medical records.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Gomez's hip condition is overblown or even a smokescreen. At $5,400 (10.8% of cap), Gomez remains a high-end outfielder. However, it might be best to avoid him on FantasyScore until after the July 31 deadline passes.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez's hip an issue

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 05:36:29 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez's (hip) issue with his hip is the reason the New York Mets balked at acquiring him.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is healthy enough to play, but the issue must be something that could be a hindrance in the future. Stay away from him on FantasyScore until the deadline passes Friday as he's still on the trading block.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez traded to NYM

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:28:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Milwaukee Brewers have acquired SP Zack Wheeler and SS Wilmer Flores from the New York Mets, in exchange for OF Carlos Gomez, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Wheeler is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and is not expected to resume pitching at the major league level until after the 2016 All-Star break. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is batting .249 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 92 games this season. He could slide over to second base or third base due to the presence of SS Jean Segura ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) at shortstop.

Brewers | Ryan Braun returns to lineup

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:54:55 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is returning to the lineup and is hitting third against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has three home runs and 11 RBI while hitting .243 (18-for-74) this month, and he's currently riding a four-game hitting streak. He has only two hits in 14 career at-bats against Peavy with six strikeouts, though, so perhaps it's best to wait another day to use Braun in your FantasyScore lineups.

Brewers | Adam Lind batting cleanup

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:42:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) returned to the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, against the San Francisco Giants after missing time due to a tight lower back.

Fantasy Tip: Lind ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is batting cleanup, but he is facing Matt Cain who is starting to come alive. Give Lind a game to prove his health before plugging him back into your FantasyScore lineup.

Brewers | Ryan Braun sidelined again

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:42:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is out of the lineup for the second straight game Tuesday, July 28, against the San Francisco Giants due to lower back tightness.

Fantasy Tip: With Braun sidelined, Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) starts in left field and bats fifth. He is a solid play in FantasyScore in a favorable spot in the order. Avoid Braun until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Brewers | Wily Peralta activated from DL

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:13:21 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta (oblique) has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and will start Tuesday, July 28, against the San Francisco Giants. In a corresponding move, RP David Goforth has been optioned to Class AAA Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) 4.00 ERA and 1.43 WHIP make him viable in only the deepest of leagues and he doesn't have meaningful splits to exploit that could make him a good matchup play. You can do worse than Peralta but you should be able to do better as well.

Brewers | Ryan Braun scratched

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:41:44 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) was scratched late for the game Monday, July 27, against the San Francisco Giants due to tightness in his lower back.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and play a full game without any setbacks. Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) replaced him and is a worthwhile replacement if Braun misses addition time.

Brewers | Jean Segura back in action

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:42:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (illness) is back in the lineup for the game Monday, July 27, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting sixth in manager Craig Counsell's lineup and is a decent mid-level FantasyScore option at this price level.

Brewers | Adam Lind remains sidelined

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:42:26 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) was sidelined again for the game Monday, July 27, against the San Francisco Giants. He should be available as a pinch hitter, and expected to be ready to return Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: With Lind out, Shane Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) made the start at first base and is a cheap option for FantasyScore players.

Brewers | Kyle Lohse headed to bullpen?

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:14:50 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse, who is 5-11 with a 6.29 ERA this year, could be making his final start against the San Francisco Giants Monday, July 27, with SP Wily Peralta (oblique) scheduled to come off the disabled list and start Game 2 of a doubleheader Tuesday, July 28. Lohse is 3-2 with a 4.78 ERA in five career starts in San Francisco.

Fantasy Tip: Lohse ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) surely shouldn't be owned in shallow mixed leagues, and he's one to avoid on FantasyScore tonight, even though he's throwing in a pitching-friendly environment and the Giants have struggled more on offense at home this year.

Brewers | Adam Lind out of starting lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:01:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 26, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. C Jonathan Lucroy is at first and C Martin Maldonado is catching.

Fantasy Tip: Lind ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is likely a victim of back tightness that forced him out of the game on Saturday. Bench Lind until he gets his health back.
