Milwaukee Brewers C Martin Maldonado is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26. C Juan Centeno will be the starting catcher for the Brewers.
Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will receive a day off after playing in each of the last four games. Centeno has not received any playing time this season and should not be a starting option.

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) will have an initial timetable of four-to-six weeks to recover from his broken toe, according to manager Ron Roenicke, Tuesday, April 21. C Martin Maldonado is next up on the depth chart and will see plenty of playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .222 hitter, but has 16 home runs in just 537 career plate appearances. Maldonado will be an option for Lucroy owners looking for some extra power and have the availability to take a hit to their batting average. Lucroy needs to be stashed whether or not owners have an available spot on their disabled list.

Milwaukee Brewers C Martin Maldonado is expected to take over as the primary catcher with C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) headed for the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured toe on his left foot.
Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) will be the regular catcher with Juan Centeno coming up from the minors to serve as his backup. It won’t take much for Maldonado to live up to FantasyScore salary expectations, and his inclusion in your lineup will provide relief to afford more stars up top.

Milwaukee Brewers INF-OF Elian Herrera was supposed to be a paternity list fill-in for 1B Lyle Overbay, but then OF Logan Schafer (hamstring) hit the 15-day disabled list. Now, OF Carlos Gomez and C Martin Maldonado face potential suspensions, meaning Herrera stands to see time as the team's starting center fielder and emergency catcher. "If suspensions come down, the catching part is going to be big. Center (field) is big, too. We don't have anybody else who can play center. (OF Ryan Braun) is really our backup center fielder if we don't have Gomez or Herrera here," manager Ron Roenicke said.
