Brewers | Aramis Ramirez expected to go on DL

Mon, 08 Jul 2013 14:31:26 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers are expected to place 3B Aramis Ramirez (knee) on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Juan Francisco may be the one to see most of the playing time at third base while Ramirez is out of the lineup. Francisco was seeing time at first base, but Sean Halton and Yuniesky Betancourt likely will handle the first-base duties. Halton and Betancourt likely will not have much value in NL-only leagues because they likely will be splitting time.

Brewers | Yuniesky Betancourt reinventing himself

Tue, 07 May 2013 16:37:39 -0700

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.
