Brewers | Yuniesky Betancourt reinventing himself

Milwaukee Brewers SS Yuniesky Betancourt spent the offseason learning English after being cast aside by the Kansas City Royals the year before because Royals manager Ned Yost said Betancourt had become part of what was a "losing culture" in Kansas City. "It was a really frustrating time for him," said Betancourt's agent, Alex Esteban, who began representing Betancourt shortly thereafter. "He was being portrayed one way, and that's just not who he is."

Fantasy Tip: Betancourt has filled in nicely with the injuries to Aramis Ramirez (knee) and Corey Hart (knee) at the corner infield spots, and his multiple eligibility makes him even more intriguing in fantasy leagues. Now that he's being more patient at the plate, too, his power stroke has resurfaced. He might finally be putting all his skills together to help him finally realize his true potential. His playing time will get tricky once Hart returns from the DL, but that's still a ways off.
