Brewers | Hernan Perez hitting second Tuesday

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:35:22 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Hernan Perez is batting second in the lineup Tuesday, July 26, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 2B Scooter Gennett, who normally hits second, is batting sixth against Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin.

Fantasy Tip: Perez had four multi-hit games in a row between July 19-22, raising his value in fantasy circles. The team has had him bat second before just to shake things up a little bit, and Perez is worth using in DFS formats with the higher lineup spot.

Brewers | Will Middlebrooks draws into the lineup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 12:55:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Will Middlebrooks is starting at third base and batting seventh against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, July 5. 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Middlebrooks' season debut, and over the previous two campaigns, he has a disappointing .202/.248/.317 slash line. There could be some promise here, though, as Middlebrooks was sporting a .282/.308/.508 slash line with Class AAA Colorado Springs. He's a player to watch in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Gennett's ownership should be limited to deep mixed and NL-only formats, and he's a low-end starting option.

Brewers | Aaron Hill batting second vs. Cards

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:00:29 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aaron Hill is batting second, and 2B Scooter Gennett is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hill is in the midst of a semi-rebound season and sports a .277/.351/.409 slash line with 31 runs, seven home runs and 25 RBI. He still isn't anything more than a low-end option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, though. Gennett has nearly identical stats (.265/.336/.427 line with 30 runs, seven home runs and 21 RBI) and boasts similar value in those deep leagues.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out of lineup Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:24:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not starting Tuesday, June 28, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 2B Jake Elmore replaces Gennett and will bat seventh against Dodgers SP Julio Urias. This is Elmore's first game with the Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is out against Urias, a lefty pitcher. This allows Aaron Hill to the move to the two-spot and boosts his fantasy value. Elmore, who hit .320-2-19 at Class AAA Colorado Springs, could be an option against left-handed hitters, but it is too soon to tell. Keep away from Elmore in DFS formats, but it is okay to think of him as a low-end DFS guy when needed and someone to stash away in deeper leagues.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett collects three more hits

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 00:17:43 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett went 3-for-4 with an RBI double against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: After hitting .186 in May, Gennett is 20-for-55 (.364) with nine RBI in June, raising his average 44 points in the process. He's routinely being stranded, however, with his 20 hits (and five walks) resulting in just three runs. Add that to minimal power and speed, and Gennett remains a non-factor outside of NL-only leagues.

Brewers | Aaron Hill in two-hole

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 15:53:50 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aaron Hill is hitting second against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir Thursday, June 16. 2B Scooter Gennett drops down to the No. 7 spot against the southpaw.

Fantasy Tip: Hill gains notable daily value with the move up the batting order. On the flip side, look to avoid Gennett against the lefty. Hill is also batting .286 (10-for-35) with a home run and six RBI in his career against Kazmir, so he's not a bad value pick to target in DFS.

Brewers | Four hits for Scooter Gennett

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 23:54:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett had four hits Thursday, June 9, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett may be slowly warming up at the plate. He has had multiple hits in four of the last eight games, and Gennett's average is now a fairly robust .260. With a slugging percentage of .404, Gennett is warming into a solid second-base presence in Milwaukee. Play him in deeper leagues and DFS formats.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett drives in three

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 21:21:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 and drove in three of the team's four runs in a win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: That's three multi-hit games in the last five for Gennett, who's 7-for-21 with five RBI in that time. With Jonathan Villar staking a claim whenever prized prospect Orlando Arcia gets promoted, Gennett's performance may determine whether Villar becomes a regular at second base or third. Despite a mini hot streak, Gennett should still be confined to NL-only formats

Brewers | Domingo Santana hitting second

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:21:09 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana is hitting second against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, June 7, with 2B Scooter Gennett out of the lineup against a left-handed pitcher. 3B Aaron Hill moves to second base, while 3B Hernan Perez is starting at the hot corner and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Santana sees a slight boost in his daily value for the day, but he's mainly been a disappointment for fantasy owners with a .242/.356/.403 slash line with four home runs and 13 RBI on the year. Santana is a work in progress at the plate but should develop more power and consistent results over time. Hill and Perez are low-end daily considerations.
