Milwaukee Brewers news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 05 May 2015 15:08:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Continue to be patient with Lucroy and keep him stashed in a DL spot in all fantasy baseball leagues. Martin Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will continue to serve as the team's primary catcher in the meantime. Maldonado is a low-end catching commodity for daily gamers.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is back, which is great news for his fantasy owners. However, he returns and is hitting at the bottom of the order. That's not great news for those at FantasyScore, and combined with a matchup against Greinke, it suggests you should stay away.
Tue, 05 May 2015 13:34:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is available again at FantasyScore, but it wouldn't be wise to throw him into your lineups immediately tonight, especially since he's facing Los Angeles Dodgers starter Zack Greinke.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Khris Davis, who has one hit in his last 19 at-bats, is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 5. OF Gerardo Parra is starting in left field, and he has eight hits in his last 16 at-bats.
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Davis ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) for now at FantasyScore while he's slumping. Parra ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hot of late, but he's facing Los Angeles Dodgers starter Zack Greinke tonight, who he is 8-for-26 (.308) off of in his career. Still, Parra makes for a weak selection in daily games this evening.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should immediately return to a starting role at second base, and it is another boost to the Brewers' weak-hitting lineup to start the 2015 season. They also got Carlos Gomez back over the weekend. Gennett profiles as a midrange second base option at FantasyScore most days.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Lucroy stashed on your DL as he's still a few weeks away from returning from a toe injury.
Mon, 04 May 2015 21:20:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Segura ($4,200; 8.4% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.
Mon, 04 May 2015 14:43:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Braun ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) probably won't be a popular FantasyScore selection tonight going up against last year's Cy Young winner. However, it could give you a big advantage if you go with Braun, and his career numbers against the lefty can give you hope.
Mon, 04 May 2015 14:24:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lohse ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), who is 1-4 with a 7.28 ERA coming in, is not recommended at FantasyScore. The Dodgers' lineup has been much more potent with Joc Pederson moving to the leadoff spot in the last week.
Mon, 04 May 2015 12:38:05 -0700
Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (head) is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday, May 4. He exited in the eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs after being hit in the head by a pitch Sunday, May 3. 2B Hector Gomez is batting eighth and starting at shortstop Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Segura ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and check back for an update on his status. Gomez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) cannot be started with confidence in FantasyScore contests against opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries to Jonathan Lucroy and slow starts by Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez may have doomed Roenicke from the start. Counsell's hiring should not change players' fantasy values much, but it will be interesting to see his strategies.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (head) exited in the eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs after being hit in the head by a pitch Sunday, May 3, and is expected to see a doctor Sunday night, according to head coach Ron Roenicke.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Segura ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will miss any more time. He has been a boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore this year, and in his last nine games, he has four multi-hit efforts and has been held without a hit five times.
Sun, 03 May 2015 05:45:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) entered the game in a 0-for-12 funk, but he appears on pace for a rebound campaign. For the season, Segura has nine runs, 10 RBI, five stolen bases and a .298/.327/.394 slash line. He makes for a nice FantasyScore shortstop against favorable pitching matchups.
