Updating a previous report, the Milwaukee Brewers are expected to place 3B Aramis Ramirez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because of a left hamstring injury. No corresponding move has been announced, although it could depend upon the health of OF Ryan Braun (oblique) and the status of OF Carlos Gomez's suspension.
Fantasy Tip: INF Mark Reynolds and 1B Lyle Overbay will benefit the most from Ramirez's absence, which comes just as Braun appears ready to come off the disabled list. The two players had been platooning at first base but now stand to see regular playing time, with Reynolds manning the hot corner and Overbay playing first on a full-time basis. Both players should be picked up in NL-only leagues.

Milwaukee Brewers INF-OF Elian Herrera was supposed to be a paternity list fill-in for 1B Lyle Overbay, but then OF Logan Schafer (hamstring) hit the 15-day disabled list. Now, OF Carlos Gomez and C Martin Maldonado face potential suspensions, meaning Herrera stands to see time as the team's starting center fielder and emergency catcher. "If suspensions come down, the catching part is going to be big. Center (field) is big, too. We don't have anybody else who can play center. (OF Ryan Braun) is really our backup center fielder if we don't have Gomez or Herrera here," manager Ron Roenicke said.

Milwaukee Brewers IF Elian Herrera, who was originally called up when 1B Lyle Overbay went on the paternity list, is still on the roster even though Overbay was activated. Herrera took the place of OF Logan Schafer (hamstring), who was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Milwaukee Brewers 1Bs Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds will likely platoon at first base to start the year, as the team elected to go with veterans at the position over 1B Juan Francisco. Overbay had three hits Sunday, March 23, but he was hitting just .114 this spring before the game.
Fantasy Tip: A platoon here basically wipes out any small value either player would have on his own. Reynolds is probably slightly more valuable because of his power potential, but he won't be seeing as many at-bats if it's a straight righty-lefty platoon.

The Milwaukee Brewers may be in the process of parting with 1B Juan Francisco, which would give 1B Mark Reynolds and 1B Lyle Overbay the edge at first base this season. Francisco's locker has been cleared out, a possible sign that the Brewers have designated Francisco for assignment. No official announcement has been made.
