Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:01:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 26, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. C Jonathan Lucroy is at first and C Martin Maldonado is catching.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki to lose starter job?

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:25:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki could lose his starting job if the Twins' pursuit of a starting catcher at the trade deadline works out. The Twins are looking at targets like Atlanta Braves C A.J. Pierzynski, San Diego Padres C Derek Norris, Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy, and Detroit Tigers C Alex Avila.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has lost some of his punch at the plate, as his batting average has dropped to .227 this season. Keep an eye on what the Twins do before July 31 and be prepared to drop Suzuki outright if he loses a chunk of his playing time.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy playing first base

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 10:48:47 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C/1B Jonathan Lucroy is batting second and starting at first base against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Saturday, July 18. 1B Adam Lind is not in the starting lineup and C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is only batting .154 at Miller Park in 78 at-bats this season and is just 4-for-24 against Liriano in his career, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore today. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is 10-for-27 (.370) over his last 10 games and can be viewed as a productive source of cap relief.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy out of the lineup

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 14:12:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Luroy in all fantasy formats Monday. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) only has four starts since the beginning of June, so he is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players. He is jumps into a red-hot lineup, though.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy heating up

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:20:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in an 8-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, July 2, and he is 8-for-15 over his last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has scored five times over the same stretch, and after missing time early in the year, his bat is starting to heat up. His career numbers suggest he should only continue to improve on his .245 batting average, and he could make a nice mid-range option at FantasyScore.

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:06:29 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a weak FantasyScore catching option today, even against the struggling Harang. Maldonado has 24 hits in 130 at-bats (.185) with three home runs and 12 RBI this season.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:33:08 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) has struggled for most of the season, but he is a must-start in FantasyScore when playing in Philadelphia due to his strong numbers at the park.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 12:15:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is back in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, June 21, batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: After getting off to a slow start offensively, Lucroy ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is batting .292 over the last four weeks and .350 over the last seven days. However, he hasn't developed his power stroke yet, as he only has one home run in 117 at-bats and just three doubles after hitting 53 in 2014.

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 10:14:59 -0700
