Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy, Hernan Perez sitting

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 09:32:30 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy and 3B Hernan Perez are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, July 9. 3B Will Middlebrooks will start at third base and is batting sixth, while C Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks has gone 1-for-5 since being recalled from the minor leagues and should be avoided in all leagues. Maldonado is only hitting .161 this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Brewers | Milwaukee to use platoon at hot corner

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 18:24:19 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers INFs Will Middlebrooks and Hernan Perez are expected to see the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner following the trade of INF Aaron Hill to the Boston Red Sox, according to general manager David Stearns. INF Jake Elmore could also see some action at third base.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks and Perez should both be owned in NL-only fantasy leagues, with Perez having a slight advantage because of his success versus right-handed pitching (.302) and his positional versatility.

Brewers | Will Middlebrooks draws into the lineup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 12:55:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Will Middlebrooks is starting at third base and batting seventh against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, July 5. 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Middlebrooks' season debut, and over the previous two campaigns, he has a disappointing .202/.248/.317 slash line. There could be some promise here, though, as Middlebrooks was sporting a .282/.308/.508 slash line with Class AAA Colorado Springs. He's a player to watch in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Gennett's ownership should be limited to deep mixed and NL-only formats, and he's a low-end starting option.

Brewers | Will Middlebrooks taking reps at first base

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 05:30:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Will Middlebrooks played first base Friday, March 11, and is willing to continue playing the opposite side of the diamond to crack the opening day roster.

"I told the guys, anywhere you can fit me in, or anywhere that can help us out any given day, throw me in there and I'll do it," Middlebrooks said.

Fantasy Tip: After showing promise as a rookie in 2012, Middlebrooks owns a .213/.258/.363 slash line through 878 plate appearances over the past three seasons. At this point, Middlebrooks is nothing more than a late-round flier in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Brewers | Will Middlebrooks signs with MIL

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 13:40:05 -0800

Free-agent 3B Will Middlebrooks (Padres) has signed a minor-league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Middlebrooks' status come spring training, as he may be worth a late-round pickup. Eleven teams were after Middlebrooks and the Brewers do not have a true starting third baseman. It looks like Middlebrooks could have a starting job.

MLB | Will Middlebrooks looked at by 11 teams

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 14:09:33 -0800

Free-agent 3B Will Middlebrooks (Padres) has gotten interest from 11 teams, including the Milwaukee Brewers, who may bring him in to work at third base.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks won't do much better than late rounds of most mixed drafts, but the fact 11 teams are looking at him indicates how much he is in demand.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sent down

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:34:58 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B/SS Will Middlebrooks was optioned to Class AAA El Paso Wednesday, July 22, with OF Abraham Almonte coming up from El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte failed to impress in a cup of coffee earlier this season, but he's leading off today. If he can carve a niche, he could be worth a low-end FantasyScore flyer.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sitting vs. Giants

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 15:31:37 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 20. SS Alexi Amarista draws into the lineup, and he is playing shortstop and batting second against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Interestingly, he has been receiving starts at shortstop, which could potentially be a huge boon to his fantasy stock if he lands eligibility there. Keep an eye on that situation. Amarista ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Monday, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check. He has a .207/.276/.290 slash line for the season.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks returns to lineup

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:02:50 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Will Middlebrooks will start at shortstop and bat eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is just 2-for-25 (.080) over his last 10 games and is hitting .191 during day games this season. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out again

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:26:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at the hot corner and batting cleanup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Middlebrooks continues to struggle at the plate, Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could continue to see regular playing time at third base. Solarte could be a sneaky sleeper/value pick on FantasyScore tonight. He's hitting much better against righties (.260/.310/.383 with three of his four home runs) than against southpaws. Being in a run-producing spot in the lineup makes him more attractive for daily users.
