Brewers | Domingo Santana lands on DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 11:33:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder strain Friday, May 20. OF Keon Broxton was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: In shallow leagues, Santana can be dropped. He hasn't been able to find a rhythm at the plate and was hitting .239 with three homers and 12 RBI. He has potential to rebound for a rebuilding Brewers club when healthy, though, so keep him stashed in deeper leagues. Broxton was hitless in 16 at-bats before being demoted, but he rebounded nicely in the minors with seven home runs, 18 RBI and 15 steals. Pick Broxton up immediately in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his speed. He should see significant playing time with Santana out and Ryan Braun (back) also ailing.

Brewers | Domingo Santana scratched

Thu, 19 May 2016 10:40:45 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) was scratched Thursday, May 19, with right shoulder soreness. OF Ramon Flores replaced him, and he's hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Today's lineup for Milwaukee looks like an expansion team with Ryan Braun (back), Jonathan Lucroy and Santana out. Flores isn't a good option against Jason Hammel, who already owns the Brewers. Hammel's fortunes in DFS look pretty good today.

Brewers | Two sitting for Brewers

Sun, 15 May 2016 10:16:10 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana and 3B Aaron Hill are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Cesar Vargas Sunday, May 15. 2B Hernan Perez will start at third base and is batting seventh, while OF Ramon Flores will start in right field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez and Flores have had some success at the plate over the last seven days, but owners on most leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Brewers | Jonathan Villar leading off

Sat, 14 May 2016 14:07:09 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jonathan Villar is leading off Saturday, May 14, with OF Domingo Santana sliding down to the fifth spot.

Fantasy Tip: Villar is hitting .360 with six RBI the last week. He's a solid start against Luis Perdomo. Santana has been on a roll, too, and moving down to the heart of the order only benefits him. He's a midrange start in DFS.

Brewers | Domingo Santana back in lineup

Wed, 11 May 2016 12:27:43 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) is returning to the starting lineup in his usual leadoff spot against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Santana hasn't started a game since May 3, but he had five pinch-hit appearances in the meantime. You may want to sit him out for a game or two in traditional leagues as he works his way back into full games. He's a contrarian play against the lefty Chen in daily formats.

Brewers | Another game out for Domingo Santana

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:08:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. OF Alex Presley is starting in right field and is batting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley.

Fantasy Tip: Santana had another pinch-hit appearance and drove in a run last night, but the young outfielder hasn't started a game since May 3. His owners should be worried, especially since he was sent for tests yesterday. A DL stint could be coming. Presley has gained some short-term value in deep mixed and NL leagues, but he's not one to consider against an up-and-coming left-hander in Conley.

Brewers | Domingo Santana getting exam

Mon, 09 May 2016 15:12:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) is heading back to Milwaukee for an exam on his right shoulder. Manager Craig Counsell said everything checked out fine.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of what Counsell said, this does not sound very promising, as Santana hasn't appeared in the starting lineup since May 3, accumulating just three pinch-hit at-bats (all resulting in strikeouts) within that span. Alex Presley gets the biggest boost in his absence and might be a decent option for deeper leagues while he's getting regular at-bats. He's filled in nicely thus far.

Brewers | Domingo Santana remains out

Mon, 09 May 2016 11:30:37 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 9. OF Alex Presley is in right field again and is in the two-hole against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Santana hasn't started a game since May 3, although he has pinch hit three times since then. At this point, there's a chance Santana could be a DL candidate if his injury lingers any longer. He should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues. Presley has benefited with more playing time and has taken advantage with two home runs, but he remains a low-end option in much deeper leagues and should be avoided against Hernandez tonight.

Brewers | Domingo Santana, Jonathan Lucroy return

Sat, 07 May 2016 12:47:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana and C Jonathan Lucroy are back in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Saturday, May 7, while SS Jonathan Villar, 3B Colin Walsh and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis receive the day off. INF Yadiel Rivera will bat eighth and play shortstop, INF Hernan Perez will play third base and hit second and OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Presley and Perez are worthy of consideration as value plays in daily fantasy leagues today. Presley is batting .310 with three home runs and eight RBI in just 29 at-bats, while Perez is 5-for-14 (.357) with two homers and three RBI. Lucroy is also enjoying recent success at the dish, batting .357 with two doubles, a home run and four RBI over the past week.

Brewers | Domingo Santana still out Friday

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:38:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) is out of the lineup Friday, May 6, with OF Alex Presley hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Presley should be a nice DFS buy with his .320-2-7 line against Tim Adleman. Santana pinch hit Thursday, and he could be a matter of days away from returning.
