Milwaukee Brewers news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should immediately return to a starting role at second base, and it is another boost to the Brewers' weak-hitting lineup to start the 2015 season. They also got Carlos Gomez back over the weekend. Gennett profiles as a midrange second base option at FantasyScore most days.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Lucroy stashed on your DL as he's still a few weeks away from returning from a toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Segura ($4,200; 8.4% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) probably won't be a popular FantasyScore selection tonight going up against last year's Cy Young winner. However, it could give you a big advantage if you go with Braun, and his career numbers against the lefty can give you hope.

Fantasy Tip: Lohse ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), who is 1-4 with a 7.28 ERA coming in, is not recommended at FantasyScore. The Dodgers' lineup has been much more potent with Joc Pederson moving to the leadoff spot in the last week.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (head) is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday, May 4. He exited in the eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs after being hit in the head by a pitch Sunday, May 3. 2B Hector Gomez is batting eighth and starting at shortstop Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Segura ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and check back for an update on his status. Gomez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) cannot be started with confidence in FantasyScore contests against opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries to Jonathan Lucroy and slow starts by Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez may have doomed Roenicke from the start. Counsell's hiring should not change players' fantasy values much, but it will be interesting to see his strategies.

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (head) exited in the eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs after being hit in the head by a pitch Sunday, May 3, and is expected to see a doctor Sunday night, according to head coach Ron Roenicke.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Segura ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will miss any more time. He has been a boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore this year, and in his last nine games, he has four multi-hit efforts and has been held without a hit five times.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) entered the game in a 0-for-12 funk, but he appears on pace for a rebound campaign. For the season, Segura has nine runs, 10 RBI, five stolen bases and a .298/.327/.394 slash line. He makes for a nice FantasyScore shortstop against favorable pitching matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Braun ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) four of his five homers and eight of his 12 RBIs this season have come in the last four games. Take full advantage of Braun at FantasyScore while he is dialed in at the plate.
Sat, 02 May 2015 16:08:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) looks like he left the game as a precaution. He will take a game or two to adjust to being back in the lineup, so keep an eye on how he does in the next couple days.
Sat, 02 May 2015 15:52:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While this is a narrow stat, the bigger news for Fiers ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is he appears to be righting the ship following an awful 0-3 start. He had six strikeouts against the St. Louis Cardinals in his previous start, so Fiers' numbers look better.

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez (hamstring) was out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game because of tightness in his left hamstring Saturday, May 2. He expects to return to the lineup against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is off to a slow start offensively, with only two homers and seven RBIs through his first 20 games. He can be avoided in FantasyScore for the time being, with other third basemen who are available for a similar price outperforming him.
