Brewers | Scooter Gennett, Kirk Nieuwenhuis out

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:18:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP John Lamb Friday, May 27. 3B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and batting second, while OF Keon Broxton is in center field and hitting eighth. 3B Aaron Hill moves over to the keystone.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb doesn't strike fear into his opponents, so Perez, Hill and Broxton could return decent value in daily leagues. Perez has the most upside in the two-hole, and he's hitting .291 (16-for-55) with three home runs and eight RBI. Broxton's main asset is his speed, so he doesn't really fit the daily landscape all that well.

Brewers | Ryan Braun remains out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:16:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, May 21. 2B Scooter Gennett will bat second and play the keystone position, with INF Aaron Hill sliding over to play third base and bat sixth. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat fifth and play center field, OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field and OF Ramon Flores will bat eighth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Presley (6-for-37) and Flores (4-for-19) have both struggled at the plate over the last two weeks and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Gennett, Hill and Nieuwenhuis have fared better but are somewhat risky fantasy options versus deGrom this afternoon.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett riding pine vs. lefty

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:49:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Steven Matz Friday, May 20. 3B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and is hitting second, while 3B Aaron Hill moves to the keystone and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is in a nice lineup spot, but he's really only valuable for his speed (five steals) as a deep sleeper in DFS action tonight. The veteran Hill doesn't do anything that stands out in any one category anymore, and he's hitting a very mediocre .244 (10-for-41) with only one of his four homers against southpaws in 2015. There's not much upside here in daily games.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy out of the lineup

Thu, 19 May 2016 08:16:58 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the lineup Thursday, May 19, with 2B Scooter Gennett hitting third. C Martin Maldonado is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is hitting .167 this week and .233 on the year. You could make a case that he's worth the basement flyer in DFS because of where he's hitting. He has hit .313 in 16 at-bats against Jason Hammel in his career. Maldonado isn't worth consideration in DFS.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out vs. lefty

Fri, 13 May 2016 15:05:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Christian Friedrich Friday, May 13. 3B Aaron Hill is starting at second base and 3B Hernan Perez is at third base and is hitting seventh. Also, SS Jonathan Villar moves to the second spot in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Against Friedrich, who was striking out less than seven hitters per nine innings in the minors, start your Brewers as value plays in daily fantasy games. Villar especially is a fine pick tonight with a move back up the order, mainly for his speed. Gennett is being eased back in coming off the DL yesterday, and the Brew Crew may elect to sit him often against left-handers.

Brewers | No rust for Scooter Gennett

Thu, 12 May 2016 20:33:06 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) returned to the lineup for the first time since April 24, and he finished 2-for-3 with a walk in 3-0 loss to the San Diego Padres Thursday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is a platoon player, but he has decent pop for a second baseman and could be a useful DFS sleeper against righties.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett returns to lineup

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:17:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) is back in the lineup and hitting second Thursday, May 12, against San Diego Padres SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Gennett's first game since April 24, so daily owners might want to wait a game or two before he shakes off the rust. For the long term, the 26-year-old has exhibited potential that he can be a decent second baseman for starting lineups in deep leagues. Of note, he already has four home runs in 62 at-bats, compared to just six in 375 at-bats a season ago.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett activated

Thu, 12 May 2016 11:46:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 12, with INF Yadiel Rivera optioned to Class AAA Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett popped four homers in his first 62 at-bats but hit just .258. Ryan Braun is the hottest hitter on the planet right now, and Gennett should see plenty to hit if he's slotted second. Give Gennett a couple days to kick off the rust before considering him in DFS.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett set for game action

Mon, 09 May 2016 15:42:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Brevard County Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett started well with 14 runs and a .361 on-base percentage through his first 18 games, and he is a viable option in deep mixed and NL-only formats. Stay tuned for updates as he works his way back to the Brewers.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out at least another week

Thu, 05 May 2016 14:47:50 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) will not be activated from the disabled list during the current road trip extending through Wednesday, May 11, according to manager Craig Counsell. Counsell noted Gennett continues to progress from his oblique strain, though.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett's strong start (14 runs and a .361 on-base percentage) moved the fantasy needle enough to make him a viable option in deep mixed leagues. Monitor his progress and whether he needs a rehab assignment before adding him again.
