Brewers | Domingo Santana begins rehab assignment

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:52:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana (shoulder) is beginning his rehab assignment with Class AA Biloxi Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Santana was a popular sleeper pick in the later rounds in 2016 for his power-speed combination, but he has failed to deliver so far this year with a .239/.353/.381 slash line and three home runs, 12 RBI and no steals. There remains upside, though, on this rebuilding club. Owners with depth concerns in the outfield in deep mixed leagues should consider stashing him for when he's healthy.

Brewers | Junior Guerra continues steady work

Mon, 30 May 2016 17:15:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra was decent in his outing Monday, May 30, versus the St. Louis Cardinals. He tossed 6 1/3 innings, yielding four runs (three earned) on eight hits. The right-hander also struck out six and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: This went in the books as Guerra's third quality starts in six tries, and the 31-year-old rookie has actually been pretty steady since first getting plugged into the rotation in the beginning of the month. He's worked at least five innings in all of his starts, allowing three runs or less in four of them. Guerra is also averaging nearly a strikeout per inning. Owners in deep leagues, even mixed ones, should be monitoring him.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez masterful vs. Brewers

Mon, 30 May 2016 16:47:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez was excellent in his Memorial Day start Monday, May 30, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He registered eight shutout innings, scattering only five hits and a walk. He also finished with eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Now this is the version of Martinez owners were hoping to see more of after his breakout campaign a year ago. It's also a relief for those who own 24-year-old right-hander, as he had allowed four or more runs in each of his last three starts. Martinez is now 5-5 with a 3.69 ERA on the year.

Brewers | Aaron Hill on the bench

Mon, 30 May 2016 09:19:57 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aaron Hill is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Monday, May 30. 3B Hernan Perez will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is hitting .316 with two home runs and 10 RBI in May and has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games. Perez should be considered a starting option in some daily fantasy leagues because of his recent play.

Brewers | Ryan Braun will miss another game

Mon, 30 May 2016 09:08:04 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (neck) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Monday, May 30. OF Alex Presley will start in left field, while OF Ramon Flores will start in right field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Braun should be considered day-to-day at this point, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Flores has five hits over his last five games and should have some value in daily fantasy leagues.

Brewers | Ryan Braun a popular trade target?

Mon, 30 May 2016 03:16:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is "the hot name out there" in the trade market, according to a scout, and the Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets, San Francisco Giants and the Chicago White Sox are among his potential landing spots.

Fantasy Tip: Neck and back issues have plagued him recently, but he has been an offensive juggernaut when in the lineup. His bat should travel wherever he goes, but landing in a better offense would only help his value.

Brewers | Jonathan Villar scores three times Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 15:41:32 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jonathan Villar scored three runs Sunday, May 29, in a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Villar has a .307 batting average and a .409 on-base percentage.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Villar owners, but there is potential bad news ahead: the promotion of Orlando Arcia from the minor leagues. Villar makes a decent DFS option for the time being, but if you have Villar in a regular league try and secure Arcia as a "handcuff" option for insurance.

Brewers | Jimmy Nelson settles down for win

Sun, 29 May 2016 15:25:53 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson struggled early but settled down to allow two runs and six hits and two walks in 7 1/3 innings Sunday, May 29. Milwaukee beat the Cincinnati Reds, 5-4, and Nelson's record improved to 5-3.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson had eight walks and 18 strikeouts in his past three starts prior to this one, but this is the first win for Nelson since May 2. You may want to watch Nelson's matchups, as the team he is on (Milwaukee) is struggling and holds down Nelson's fantasy value. He may be worth a DFS start if the matchup warrants.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy having great series

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:31:47 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is 6-for-11 with nine RBIs in the current series against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Yes, this year's Reds have a tendency to make anyone look good. However, Lucroy is one of the National League's top catchers and merits play in both DFS and regular leagues. He's starting to catch fire (.272-8-17 in May alone) and should have a hot summer behind the plate.

Brewers | Ryan Braun dealing with injury

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:30:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (neck) has not been in the lineup for the last few days because neck stiffness and soreness, according to manager Craig Counsell.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on the situation, but the injury does not appear to be serious. Braun has posted solid numbers this season and should be in starting lineups when he is healthy.

Brewers | Ryan Braun remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 09:10:26 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun remains out of the lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, May 29, with OF Alex Presley playing left field for the second consecutive game. In addition, INF Hernan Perez will bat second and play third base, INF Aaron Hill will bat fifth and play second base and OF Ramon Flores will play right field and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is batting .391 with six RBI over the past two weeks, while Flores is batting .300 over that same span. Both players can be viewed as inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy contests. Hill is batting .370 with five home runs and 13 RBI over the past four weeks and merits serious consideration as a value play.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress stuck with loss

Sat, 28 May 2016 18:51:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress blew his second save of the year and a took the loss against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 28, allowing one run on one hit and a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffress has been a dependable closer for the Brewers this season, so there is no reason to be worried about his job security after one bad outing.

Brewers | Corey Knebel rehab update

Sat, 28 May 2016 11:55:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers RP Corey Knebel (oblique) is slated to make two rehab appearances for Class A Brevard County and two appearances for Class AAA Colorado Springs before being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Knebel has not pitched at all this year but was effective in a setup role for Milwaukee last season, posting a 3.22 ERA in 48 appearances with 58 strikeouts over 50 1/3 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander could be useful in NL-only fantasy leagues once he is healthy because of his high strikeout totals.

Brewers | Matt Garza rehab update

Sat, 28 May 2016 11:52:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza (lat) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Class A Wisconsin Tuesday, May 31. If all goes well, he is hoping to return to the parent club's starting rotation June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Garza went 6-14 with a 5.63 ERA in 26 games (25 starts) for the Brewers in 2015 but is likely to step into a starting role once he is healthy enough to return, which speaks volumes about the rest of the team's rotation. If he performs well in his first few outings, the 32-year-old right-hander could be worthy of consideration for NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Brewers | Ryan Braun resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:52:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon Saturday, May 28. OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field. In addition, 2B Scooter Gennett and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis are back in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Presley is 3-for-7 with a home run and two RBI versus Simon in his career but his overall numbers this season (.229-3-10) are nothing to write home about. He should be viewed as a flier option in daily fantasy contests capable of providing salary cap relief.
