Brewers | Orlando Arcia on fire

Tue, 24 May 2016 09:10:37 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Orlando Arcia extended his hitting streak to 14 games at Class AAA Colorado Springs Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is hitting .325 this month and .316 overall. He has four homers, 22 RBI and six steals in the hitter-friendly league. Jonathan Villar has played extremely well for the Brew Crew, but Arcia is going to be hard to stave off. Stash him in NL-only leagues and keep him on your watch lists in mixed leagues.

Brewers | Will Smith to begin rehab stint

Mon, 23 May 2016 06:15:30 -0700

Updating previous reports, Milwaukee Brewers RP Will Smith (knee) will report to Class A Brevard County Tuesday, May 24, to begin his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Smith could be back in a couple of weeks, but Jeremy Jeffress has been solid as the closer. Smith could emerge as the next in line, but he's limited to NL-only value right now.

Brewers | Chris Carter gets rest day

Sun, 22 May 2016 15:03:48 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter did not start Sunday, May 22, as he got a day off to rest. OF Ramon Flores started in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Carter is enjoying a renaissance year, if you call 12 home runs and an average near .250 a renaissance. Still, in his final couple years with the Houston Astros it was not out of the question for him to bat .200 with 40 homers. Carter is doing well enough for now to merit fantasy consideration.

Brewers | Ryan Braun singles in return

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:54:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) singled once in four at-bats Sunday, May 22, in his return to the lineup. The Brewers lost, 3-1, to the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Braun is battling a stiff back and he looks all right for the time being, but if the back flares up again it could become an issue. Still, he was hitting .364-7-28 heading into this game so take advantage of his talents for now.

Brewers | Ryan Braun returns to lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:39:24 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, May 22, batting third. In addition, INF Hernan Perez will play third base and bat sixth, while 1B/OF Ramon Flores will start at first base and bat eighth. 1B Chris Carter and INF Aaron Hill receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Braun has been having a tremendous season and he should be re-inserted into all fantasy lineups without hesitation. On the other hand, Perez and Flores should be avoided due to the unfavorable matchup against Syndergaard.

Brewers | Will Smith close to returning

Sun, 22 May 2016 07:43:48 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers RP Will Smith (knee) threw a successful bullpen session Saturday, May 21, and is ready to begin a rehab assignment, according to manager Craig Counsell. If all goes well, he should be activated from the disabled list during the first week of June.

Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Jeffress has done nothing to warrant losing the closer's job but a healthy Smith would probably be next in the pecking order to see save opportunities if he falters down the line. Smith posted a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 12.9 K/9 rate in 2015, so he has some value in fantasy leagues which use the holds category.

Brewers | Ryan Braun hoping to play Sunday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:43:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) felt fine after taking batting practice for the first time in several days Saturday, May 20. He hopes to return to the starting lineup against the New York Mets Sunday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Braun has gotten off to a tremendous start at the dish, batting .364 with seven home runs and 28 RBI through 35 games. Don't hesitate to start him in any fantasy format if he is given the green light to play Sunday.

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 | Wily Peralta tagged with loss

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:09:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta (2-5) allowed three runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the New York Mets Friday, May 20, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta has only tossed one quality start in four outings this month but has a favorable matchup in his next scheduled appearance against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, May 26. However, he should still be viewed as a low-end starting option in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Brewers | Ryan Braun not expected to hit the DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:03:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is not a candidate to be placed on the disabled list, manager Craig Counsell said Friday, May 20. Counsell noted Braun is still nursing a lower back injury and is still considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Braun has been cruising to the tune of a .364/.429/.576 slash line with 21 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI and two stolen bases, and fantasy owners hope he can put the injury behind him and continue mashing at the dish. Missing a few games should be expected with Braun, so don't overreact. When he is in the lineup, the production is solid. Stay tuned for updates.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett riding pine vs. lefty

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:49:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Steven Matz Friday, May 20. 3B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and is hitting second, while 3B Aaron Hill moves to the keystone and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is in a nice lineup spot, but he's really only valuable for his speed (five steals) as a deep sleeper in DFS action tonight. The veteran Hill doesn't do anything that stands out in any one category anymore, and he's hitting a very mediocre .244 (10-for-41) with only one of his four homers against southpaws in 2015. There's not much upside here in daily games.

Brewers | Ryan Braun remains out

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:41:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, May 20. OFs Alex Presley and Keon Broxton are both in the starting lineup. Broxton is hitting seventh and playing center field, while Presley is hitting eighth and playing left field against New York Mets SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Given Braun's lengthy injury history, this could be something that lands him on the DL. Prepare for the worst. With Braun hurting and Domingo Santana on the DL, Broxton and Presley could see regular playing time moving forward. Broxton is the more attractive fantasy option for his speed. He stole 15 bases after being demoted earlier this year and had 39 thefts last year.

Brewers | Will Smith puts in more work

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:02:45 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Will Smith (knee) had another round of fielding practice Friday, May 20. He'll throw another bullpen session Saturday, May 21, and could go on a minor league rehab assignment after that.

Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Jeffress has performed well in the closer's role and has just one blown save, so he certainly deserves to stick there, but the Brewers could go in another direction once Smith is ready. Smith was effective with a 2.70 ERA ans 12.9 K/9 in 2015, but he has only one career save to his name. Saves speculators should stash him now.

Brewers | Domingo Santana lands on DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 11:33:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder strain Friday, May 20. OF Keon Broxton was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: In shallow leagues, Santana can be dropped. He hasn't been able to find a rhythm at the plate and was hitting .239 with three homers and 12 RBI. He has potential to rebound for a rebuilding Brewers club when healthy, though, so keep him stashed in deeper leagues. Broxton was hitless in 16 at-bats before being demoted, but he rebounded nicely in the minors with seven home runs, 18 RBI and 15 steals. Pick Broxton up immediately in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his speed. He should see significant playing time with Santana out and Ryan Braun (back) also ailing.

Brewers | Keon Broxton coming up

Fri, 20 May 2016 07:24:19 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Keon Broxton will be called up by the team Friday, May 20, according to Class AAA Colorado Springs manager Rick Sweet. The Brewers haven't announced the move yet.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton has elite speed, but he went hitless in 16 at-bats to open the season. He hit .301 with seven homers and 15 steals in 103 at-bats at Triple-A. Keep in mind his home park is a band box, and the Pacific Coast League is an offensive juggernaut. Don't expect that power when he comes up. He's worth a waiver claim for his steals potential.
