Brewers | Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy absent

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 15:04:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) and C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remain out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Domingo Santana is starting in right field and hitting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha, while C Martin Maldonado is catching and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), a piece in the Carlos Gomez trade, has been a bright spot for Milwaukee, and he continues to hit since being called up. He remains attractive as a value pick even in a tougher matchup. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be avoided in daily contests.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sidelined

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 13:59:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remains sidelined due to a concussion. C Martin Maldonado is hitting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is a likely candidate to be shut down for the rest of the year if his concussion issues don't abate, so stay tuned. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) does have two hits in four at-bats against Arrieta, so he may be worth the low-cost flier in FantasyScore.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy remains out vs. Cubs

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:16:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remains out of the lineup Monday, Sept. 21. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Monday.

Fantasy Tip: In this case, no news is bad news, as Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) remains without a return timeline. Reiterating previous tips, seasonal owners shouldn't be afraid to cut ties with Lucroy for a backstop who can return immediate help. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is nothing more than a dice roll at FantasyScore Monday, as he sports an uninspiring .203/.284/.297 slash line this season.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy sitting vs. Reds

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 14:52:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remains out of the lineup Friday, Sept. 18. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) remains without a return timeline, so realistically, he could land in the lineup any day. However, seasonal owners shouldn't count on him for the rest of the season. Concussions are finicky, and there is no word on whether Lucroy has even begun baseball activities. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will handle the majority of catching duties during Lucroy's absence, but Maldonado is nothing more than a low-end option in all fantasy formats, including at FantasyScore.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy remains out vs. Cards

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 12:32:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) hasn't played in over a week, and with no update on an expected timeline, seasonal owners should be searching for immediate help. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is nothing more than a flier at FantasyScore Thursday, as Lackey ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) owns a 2.36 ERA over his past 17 starts.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy still out vs. Cards

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 14:04:53 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been out since Tuesday, Sept. 8, and concussions are a finicky injury, so seasonal owners shouldn't be afraid to grab a catcher who can help in the now. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) sports a sub-.200 batting average for the season and is a low-end option in all fantasy formats, including FantasyScore.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy not in Game 2 lineup

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 14:56:39 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Cincinnati Reds. C Martin Maldonado is starting and batting eighth against Reds SP Keyvius Sampson.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is simply getting a rest after catching the first game of the double dip. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) may be a cheap source of points thanks to his .667 average in the past week.

Brewers | No Adam Lind vs. Cincinnati

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:22:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Jonathan Lucroy is starting at first base, and C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Lind ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The veteran is batting just .215 against lefties this season, so it is an opportune time to provide him with a game off. Since you can only play one of Lucroy ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) or Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) at FantasyScore Sunday, it is worth spending up to target Lucroy who has 16 runs, four home runs and 11 RBI wiht a .866 OPS in August.
