Brewers | Jimmy Nelson drops ninth decision

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 21:27:31 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson allowed eight runs -- six earned -- on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, July 27. He walked two and struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: In fairness, Milwaukee's defense was particularly abysmal on Wednesday, even if it only ended up with two of the runs being unearned. Still, this was the continuation of a major swoon for Nelson, who is 1-6 with a 4.88 ERA and 1.74 WHIP over his last 10 starts. He's exclusively an NL-only/deep-mixed candidate at this time.

Reds | Brandon Phillips absent from lineup

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 13:10:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) is not in the lineup Saturday, July 16, against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson. 2B Jose Peraza will fill in for Phillips at second base and hit seventh, while C Ramon Cabrera will replace C Tucker Barnhart behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Philips has seen his production drop off significantly this season as a result of dealing with foot, ankle and hand injuries. He is batting .260, hasn't homered since May 7 and registered only two stolen bases since the end of April, making him waiver-wire fodder in a number of leagues. Peraza's only desirable fantasy attribute at the moment is his speed and Cabrera doesn't provide much of anything as Barnhart's backup, making both players difficult to recommend in any format.

Brewers | Jimmy Nelson pitches well in ND

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 21:41:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson allowed two runs on six hits in six innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, July 8. He did not factor in the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson looked poised to get his first win since May 29, but Will Smith gave up the lead in the eighth to stretch Nelson's winless streak to seven starts. On the bright side, he has been pitching better after a rough start to June, posting a 2.45 ERA over his last four outings (22 innings). His suddenly inability to strike anyone out, however, limits Nelson's appeal to deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta out Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:37:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is not in the lineup Friday, July 8, against the Milwaukee Brewers. 3B Greg Garcia will start again and lead off against Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Leave Peralta off your active roster until he is healthy enough to play without pain. The team isn't worried long-term, and Peralta will get a natural break come All-Star time. Garcia (.344-2-10) may be worth a low-priced pickup in daily leagues with him in the leadoff spot, and he could be stashed in deeper formats with Matt Carpenter out.
