Milwaukee Brewers news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:34:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lind ($4,300; or 8.6% of cap) is a must-start in FantasyScore while running hot, especially at a mid-level salary.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($4,800; or 9.6% of cap) is a must-start in FantasyScore for the remainder of the series at The Vault given his strong career numbers at the stadium.

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 4-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBIs Monday, June 29, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Lucroy loves Citizens Bank Park, going 22-for-44 (.500) in 11 career games.
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) has struggled for most of the season, but he is a must-start in FantasyScore when playing in Philadelphia due to his strong numbers at the park.

Fantasy Tip: Davis' ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) return will spell trouble for Gerardo Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), who could fall into a platoon in left field with the returning Davis. Parra is the one to own for now in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, but keep an eye on Davis if he bounces back after struggling earlier this year.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could be back with the team as early as this weekend if everything goes according to plan. However, he was hitting just .250 (37-for-148) with five home runs and 16 RBI before his injury, and he could share playing time with Gerardo Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in left field when he returns. Davis should be left to the waiver wire in shallow mixed leagues, but keep him on your radar if he turns things around.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta (oblique) threw his first bullpen session Monday, June 29, since landing on the disabled list, and he said it went well. He's hoping to go on a rehab assignment within two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) won't be back in the Brewers' rotation anytime soon. He should be left to the waiver wire in shallow mixed leagues, and there's no guarantee he's given a rotation spot back when he's ready.

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. 2B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ramirez ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) in all formats Monday. The veteran is beginning to show the signs of his age and owns a .214/.253/.405 slash line this season. He is nothing more than a deep mixed option and FantasyScore flier. Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief for daily contests Monday.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Saturday, June 27. OF Gerardo Parra will start in right field and is batting first, while OF Shane Peterson is starting in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should be back soon. Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last 10 games, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
Thu, 25 Jun 2015 17:04:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lohse ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is sporting a 6.30 ERA on the season and 1.37 WHIP in 15 starts. You should definitely avoid him in daily games tomorrow, as he has an 8.48 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in eight home starts this season at hitter-friendly Miller Park.
Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:28:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .381 the last week, but he matches up against Jacob deGrom. He's a roll of the dice, but he'll allow you to load up elsewhere on FantasyScore.
Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:25:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peterson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .353 the last seven days but faces off against Jacob deGrom. He's worth the speculative flyer on FantasyScore despite the matchup.
Thu, 25 Jun 2015 04:47:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nelson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) allowed seven runs and 10 hits over five innings in a loss to the Washington Nationals on June 13, then yielded three runs and a career-worst 11 hits over five innings against the Kansas City Royals. Nelson is still a matchup at best in FantasyScore formats, but it's nice to know he avoided getting off to a bad start.

Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be out of the question for Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) to remain out until after the All-Star break, and seasonal owners should consider any contributions before that a bonus. He projects to see at least semi-regular playing time once he returns, with Gerardo Parra ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely losing his everyday role. Continue to check back for updates.

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Darrell Ceciliani is starting in left field and batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in your seasonal lineups and avoid him at FantasyScore. He is currently stuck in a 3-for-21 funk and likely should be reserved for deep yearly formats only. Ceciliani ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Wednesday.
Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:20:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lind ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has all 10 of his long balls off righties this season, and he's hit six of his 10 round-trippers at Miller Park. It's the perfect night to run with Lind on FantasyScore as your first baseman.
