Brewers | Will Middlebrooks on the DL

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 10:57:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Will Middlebrooks (leg) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower right leg strain Monday, July 25, and OF Keon Broxton was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks had only three hits in 27 at-bats (.111) this year, so he can be dropped in even the deepest of NL-only leagues. Broxton has speed to burn but hit just .125 (8-for-64) this year and is unlikely to receive regular playing time. Only add him in NL leagues if you need some speed.

Brewers | Keon Broxton demoted Sunday

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 09:27:08 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Keon Broxton was sent to the minors Sunday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton has shown well in the minors but hasn't translated that to success in the majors yet, as he was hitting just .125 (8-for-64) with one homer, two RBI and seven steals. Speed is his biggest asset, but until he shows he's major league material, he can be left alone in all fantasy formats.

Brewers | Kirk Nieuwenhuis out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:33:33 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will not start Tuesday, June 28, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Keon Broxton will play center field and bat eighth against Dodgers SP Julio Urias.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis is out with Urias pitching for the Dodgers, so the lefty vs. lefty matchup is avoided. Broxton has little fantasy value and strikes out way too much for fantasy owners' tastes. Broxton's value mainly comes from the speed he possesses, so he may be a low-end option if you're looking for speed.

Brewers | Ryan Braun returns to lineup Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:35:02 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is back in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Saturday, June 25. In addition, INF/OF Hernan Perez will bat sixth and play right field, with OF Keon Broxton batting eighth and playing center field. OFs Ramon Flores and Kirk Nieuwenhuis are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has cooled off after a hot start at the plate in 2016 and is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in daily fantasy games. Broxton is 8-for-57 (.140) with 31 strikeouts and should be avoided in all formats.

Brewers | Hernan Perez, Keon Broxton starting

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:09:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Hernan Perez is starting in right field and is hitting second against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, June 14. OF Keon Broxton draws into the lineup in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez and Broxton carry mild intrigue in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues because of their speed, but neither are very attractive to those in daily setups, especially while facing Bumgarner Tuesday night.

Brewers | Keon Broxton swipes a pair

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 16:43:16 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Keon Broxton went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and two steals in a 5-3 win over the New York Mets Sunday, June 12, and he has four steals in his last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton's inconsistent playing time limits his value, but he can help in NL-only leagues if you are desperate for steals.

Brewers | Kirk Nieuwenhuis not in the lineup

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:58:42 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, June 12. OF Keon Broxton will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Broxton has recorded only one hit in his last seven games and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues at this point.

Brewers | Domingo Santana back to the DL

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:30:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 10. The transaction is retroactive to Wednesday, June 8. In a corresponding move, OF Keon Broxton was recalled from Class AAA Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: Santana owns ample upside, but he hasn't shown enough this season to be stashed outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only setups. His .391 slugging percentage hardly moves the fantasy needle. Similarly, Broxton is just 4-for-38 this season, but he does have three stolen bases and could help teams who are in dire need of speed.

Brewers | Domingo Santana activated from DL

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 12:01:52 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 3. In a corresponding move, OF Keon Broxton was optioned to Class AAA Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: While Santana has shown some promise early in his career with 11 home runs and 38 RBI through 320 plate appearances dating back to last season, he also owns an underwhelming .238 batting average during the span. He is a player to watch in all leagues because of the upside, but it is best to leave Santana to the waiver wire outside of deep mixed and NL-only setups. Broxton should be replaced in all redraft formats.

Brewers | Milwaukee resting four starters

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 08:51:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett, C Jonathan Lucroy, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis and OF Alex Presley are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday, June 1. 2B Aaron Hill will start at second base, while 3B Hernan Perez will start at third base and is batting second. OF Ramon Flores will start in right field and is batting sixth. OF Keon Broxton will start in center field and is batting seventh, while C Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez and Flores have each hit over .300 over the last seven days and should have some value in some daily fantasy leagues. Broxton and Maldonado have struggled at the plate this season and probably can be avoided in most leagues.
