Brewers | Domingo Santana grabs a breather

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 12:40:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. OF Shane Peterson is starting in center field and batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has 11 runs, five home runs, 11 RBI and a .260/.371/.521 slash line over 22 games since joining the Brewers. He is worth a roster spot in the majority of mixed leagues, especially if you're chasing the home run category. Peterson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has an active 4-for-27 stretch with a .485 OPS and isn't a strong FantasyScore play Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Braun ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He is having a bounce-back season with 83 runs, 25 home runs, 83 RBI and a .289/.357/.510 slash line. Peterson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is a potential source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Friday, but expectations should be kept in check with his .260/.323/.343 slash line.

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:09:38 -0700

Fantasy Tip: No reason was given for the absence of Braun ($5,800, 11.6% of cap), but it may just be a normal night off. Still, Braun is hitting .306 against the Chicago Cubs this season, so this is a bit mysterious. Keep an eye on whether there is more to this.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sitting Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:21:42 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago Cubs. C Martin Maldonado will start behind the plate and hit eighth in the order against RHP Kyle Hendricks, while OF Shane Peterson will hit second and start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting below .200 against both right and left pitching this season, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore. Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 with two singles and a walk Friday, and he'll have some upside while offering cap relief.

Brewers | Shane Peterson could bump up

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:07:45 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Shane Peterson could serve as the primary reserve outfielder if OF Gerardo Parra is traded in the next few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($1,800; or 3.6% of cap) is only worth a look if and when he draws a start, especially against left-handed pitching. He is 7-for-13 (.538) so far against southpaws.
