Brewers | Ryan Braun in extra-base drought

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 07:53:29 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is 9-for-38 (.237) with no extra-base hits thus far.

Fantasy Tip: It's still very early, but there should be some concern whether the thumb injury has affected his swing and zapped his power. At $5,100 (10.2% of your cap), he really can't be used on FantasyScore until he shows signs of life.

Brewers | Ryan Braun bats leadoff

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 20:17:02 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun hit leadoff for the first time in his career Saturday, April 18, finishing 2-for-3 with a run scored.

Fantasy Tip: The move was made to try to jumpstart Milwaukee's offense, and while it seems unlikely Braun ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) will remain atop the lineup for long, his RBI potential will take a hit in the meantime. It may best to avoid Braun as the Brewers work out all the kinks with their lineup.

Brewers | Ryan Bruan returns vs. Pirates

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 12:22:06 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) has returned to the starting lineup and will play right field and bat third against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: After making a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, April 8, it isn't surprising to see Braun ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) back in the lineup. It would be wise to allow Braun to prove his health before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests. Hopefully, seasonal owners who reached for him in the early rounds can exhale now.

Brewers | Ryan Braun out again

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 13:11:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) is not in the starting lineup for the game against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Gerardo Parra ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will receive another start because of the injury and is entering the game 1-for-6 this season. Parra could be an option for owners looking to save some money at the position but is not a must-start option.

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 15:29:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) could return to the lineup as early as Wednesday, April 8, according to manager Ron Roenicke.

Fantasy Tip: If Braun ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) does return to the lineup tomorrow, he'll be attractive at FantasyScore going up against youngster Eddie Butler and the Colorado Rockies.

Brewers | Ryan Braun feeling better

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 14:22:46 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) said he is feeling much better Tuesday, April 7, and he is day-to-day. Braun is hoping he won't have to miss much time.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Braun ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) may have avoided a serious abdominal or oblique injury. However, his owners should still be mildly concerned that it could linger and affect his power output. In the meantime, Gerardo Parra ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will see more playing time, beginning tonight against the Colorado Rockies. Parra is a sneaky FantasyScore play matching up against Jordan Lyles.

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 13:35:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) will not be in the lineup Tuesday, April 7, due to a strained lower right side.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should be shelved immediately in your leagues until the extent of his injury is known. In the meantime, it appears Gerardo Parra ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will draw Braun's at-bats.

Brewers | Ryan Braun uncertain of injury severity

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 15:25:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) said he will not know the severity of his lower side soreness until Tuesday, April 7. Braun suffered the injury chasing down a fly ball in the fourth inning Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Consider Braun ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) a risky daily option until he returns and proves his health. Expect the Brewers to be cautious with their star outfielder, too. Gerardo Parra ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) projects to see starting playing time in Braun's absence, and Parra presents a nice profit opportunity on his minimal cap hit for FantasyScore players. Continue to check back for updates.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) left the game early Monday, April 6, because of a strained lower side.

Fantasy Tip: Braun's ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) status likely will be updating in the near future, so owners will have a better timetable for his return. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid Braun until he is able to return to the lineup.
