Brewers | Ryan Braun gets first HR, RBI of July

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:12:08 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun went 1-for-3 with a solo home run against the Chicago Cubs on Friday, July 22. It was his first home run and first RBI since June 29 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Braun's power outage lasted 15 games and 59 at-bats, which, given Braun's history and spot in the batting order, is rather stunning. He has hit safely in each game since the All-Star break and remains a solid OF2 in all formats

Brewers | Hernan Perez keeps hitting

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 21:20:30 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Hernan Perez went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a steal in a 5-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs Friday, July 22, and he has hit safely in all six games he has played in since the All-Star break, recording four straight multi-hit games.

Fantasy Tip: His speed alone makes him worth considering in NL-only formats, and Perez could make a great DFS sleeper during his current hot streak.

Pirates | Matt Joyce draws in vs. Brewers

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:56:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Matt Joyce is batting fourth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Thursday, July 21, after OF Starling Marte (illness) was scratched because of flu-like symptoms.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce is a great low-priced flier in daily contests Thursday. Garza has allowed a .366 wOBA to lefty bats over the past two seasons, and Joyce owns a .920 OPS against right-handed hurlers this season. Make sure to sub out Marte where you can Thursday, especially in daily contests.

Pirates | David Freese batting fifth vs. Brewers

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:15:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B/1B David Freese is starting at third base and batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Thursday, July 21. Pirates SS/3B Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Freese continues to have a solid campaign and sits with 42 runs, 10 home runs, 40 RBI and a .289/.368/.467 slash line. He's worth starting in deep mixed leagues. Kang is batting just .176 in July and has some legal concerns looming. It isn't out of the question to replace him in shallow leagues.

Brewers | Jake Elmore batting second vs. Pirates

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:04:27 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Jake Elmore is starting in center field and batting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Thursday, July 21. Brewers OF Ramon Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore has reached the majors with five different teams over the past five years and owns a .567 OPS through 151 career games. Still, hitting second could make him a potential punt play in daily contests Thursday. Flores is doing very little with the consistent playing time he's receiving, and he's nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sitting vs. Pirates

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:58:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy is having a banner season with 44 runs, 12 home runs, 48 RBI, five stolen bases and a .305/.362/.492 slash line. Sub him out where you can in seasonal leagues and continue to view the backstop as a slam-dunk starter in all formats. He's also likely to receive a fantasy boost with a trade to a contender probable. Maldonado owns a .580 OPS over the past two seasons and is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Thursday. However, he should see an uptick in playing time if Lucroy is traded, which would make Maldonado a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only settings.

Brewers | Domingo Santana to rehab soon

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 10:44:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (elbow) is hopeful of starting a minor league rehab assignment soon, and it'll probably last for around a week.

Fantasy Tip: Santana has been very slow to heal from his elbow ailment and hasn't played since June 7. Assuming he has no setbacks, he could be back later this month or in early August. Fantasy owners aren't excited to see him back, though, as he was disappointing with a .234 average, four home runs and 13 RBI in 128 at-bats. He could rebound for those in deep mixed and NL-only leagues when he's back, but take a wait-and-see approach.

Brewers | Ryan Braun scores three times

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 21:43:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with a triple and three runs scored against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday, July 20. He also stole a base.

Fantasy Tip: Braun is having an incredibly quiet month. How quiet? He doesn't have a home run OR an RBI in 52 ABs, and tonight's three runs almost matched his previous month-to-date total (four). We wouldn't advocate dropping him, but you could certainly consider sitting him down until his productivity picks up.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy drives in three

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 21:21:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-3 with a run scored and three RBI against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy doesn't appear to be distracted by the ongoing trade rumors, having hit safely in all five games since the All-Star break with six RBI. He's among the elite fantasy backstops out there, and Lucroy could see his value spike if the All-Star is moved to a more potent lineup.

Brewers | Chase Anderson lasts just four innings

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 21:13:45 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson allowed three runs on six hits in four innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday, July 20. He walked a pair and struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: This was the fifth straight start where Anderson failed to finish the fifth inning, and over his last six outings his season line has dropped from a respectable 4-6, 4.21 ERA to 4-10, 5.50 ERA. While he flashed some promise earlier this year, Anderson isn't even worth starting in NL-only leagues right now.

Giants | Two Brewers on Giants' radar

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 06:40:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress and RP Will Smith have been scouted by the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants have been wavering on Santiago Casilla as their closer as he has blown five saves in 26 chances. Jeffress could come over and have a chance to slot in the ninth. However, odds are that he'll set up if he's dealt. Smith would only gain value if Jeffress is dealt and Smith is not. Both are worth owning universally.

Brewers | Junior Guerra posts another QS

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:19:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra surrendered two runs on three hits over six innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday, July 19. He walked three and struck out six in a no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: Guerra stumbled early, loading the bases and allowing two runs to cross in the first inning, but he settled in after that and held the Bucs to one hit over his final five frames. It's time to start believing in Guerra, who has six wins, strong ratios (3.06 ERA, 1.06 WHIP) and above-average strikeout numbers (78 in 88 1/3 IP). He has definite appeal even in standard leagues.

Brewers | Zach Davies does well in first start

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:23:08 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies, who was recalled from Class AAA Colorado Springs before the game against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, July 17, allowed four hits with no walks and five strikeouts. He did not get the decision as the Reds won, 1-0, in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: This was not a bad first start for Davies, but as always you want to see if a pitcher does well in his first two or three starts before investing a roster spot. Keep an eye on his progress and how Davies does against more experienced teams.

Brewers | Kirk Nieuwenhuis back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:55:22 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat sixth and play center field against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Sunday, July 17, while OF Ramon Flores bats eighth and starts in right field. INF/OF Hernan Perez is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis is 3-for-26 (.115) in July and is hitting just .162 in day games, while Flores has collected only six hits through 34 at-bats (.176) this month. Both players should be avoided everywhere.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy owns Cincinnati

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 19:58:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 9-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, July 16, and he is hitting .452 with five home runs and 12 RBI against the Reds this year.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy is one of the best fantasy catchers, and he deserves a long look in DFS games when he is facing Cincinnati.
