Brewers | Ryan Braun resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:52:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon Saturday, May 28. OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field. In addition, 2B Scooter Gennett and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis are back in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Presley is 3-for-7 with a home run and two RBI versus Simon in his career but his overall numbers this season (.229-3-10) are nothing to write home about. He should be viewed as a flier option in daily fantasy contests capable of providing salary cap relief.

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 | 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 | 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.
