Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (finger) was scratched from the lineup Friday, August 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals. INF Elian Herrera is replacing Gennett at second base.
Fantasy Tip: Gennett had just 63 plate appearances in July. He dealt with a quadriceps injury, and he is still in a platoon with Rickie Weeks. Gennett is losing some of his standard-league appeal, but he should be owned in all deep mixed and NL-only formats.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura returned to his native Dominican Republic last weekend after learning that his nine-month-old son had passed away after an illness, and the team is in the process of trying to contact Segura to see when he plans on rejoining the team, according to general manager Doug Melvin. Segura can remain on the bereavement list through Friday, July 18, but the team would have to put him on the restricted list if he's out any longer. INF Elian Herrera will remain on the roster while Segura is out.
Fantasy Tip: The team hasn't heard from Segura yet, which is a sign that he might not return by Friday. If you own Segura, plan for him to be out a bit longer, as this is a pretty touchy subject. We also don't know how this tragedy might affect his play on the field.

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Khris Davis (shoulder) suffered a left shoulder strain Tuesday, July 1. He referred to cramping in his pectoral muscle and will receive further treatment. His status for Wednesday, July 2, is unknown.
Fantasy Tip: A strain and cramping don't sound too serious, so consider Davis day-to-day. Even with a slow start to the season, Davis has been a productive fantasy option. Elian Herrera should see additional playing time, at least in the short term, depending on the severity of Davis' injury.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) left the game early Thursday, May 22, because of tightness in his right side.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Braun will miss any time, so owners in daily leagues will need to monitor the situation. Logan Schafer and Elian Herrera likely would receive more playing time if Braun is out for an extended period of time.
