Milwaukee Brewers news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 05:21:43 -0700
Updating previous reports, Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) will have a follow-up MRI Wednesday, Oct. 7, and surgery is likely Oct. 8. He's expected to require a month to recover from the surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Braun had his best year since his monster 2012 season with a .285-25-84 line with 24 steals. He turns 32 in two weeks and will still be an upper echelon outfielder next drafting season.

Fantasy Tip: After two rough starts to begin his career, Wagner ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was a tough luck loser Saturday. It remains to be seen if he will be in the mix for a rotation spot to start 2016, and even if he is, he doesn't need to be drafted in fantasy leagues.

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind and SS Jean Segura are not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. 1B Jason Rogers and SS Yadiel Rivera draw into the lineup against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: The Milwaukee lineup is lacking significant punch, and so there isn't a lot of reason to target Brewers at FantasyScore Thursday. View Rogers ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) as nothing more than desperation flier.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (neck) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. 1B Brett Wallace draws into the lineup and is batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) left the game because of a neck strain Wednesday, Sept. 30, and his status for the weekend is unknown at this point. It isn't out of the question to add a healthy replacement in seasonal leagues, especially if your in need of counting stats. Wallace ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) owns a 1.019 OPS against righties this season, so he is a viable low-priced target for FantasyScore players Thursday.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 12:35:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With just one start since suffering a concussion Tuesday, Sept. 8, Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) shouldn't be owned in seasonal leagues at this point. He might make another start this season, but with the Brewers mailed in for the 2015 season, there is no reason to start Lucroy if he isn't 100%.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Solarte ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He has had a solid second half with a .300/.346/.478 slash line and eight home runs. He could pack some punch over the final games of the season, and his positional versatility helps, too.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 16:19:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has started one game since suffering a concussion Tuesday, Sept. 8. Seasonal owners should check their waiver wire for a replacement, as Lucroy is unlikely to move the fantasy needle significantly again this season.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 00:37:40 -0700
Milwaukee Brewers SP Jorge Lopez won his first major league decision Tuesday, Sept. 29, as he allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings, struck out seven and walked two in a 4-3 win over the San Diego Padres.
Fantasy Tip: Lopez is too new to have FantasyScore value since he was just selected from Class AA Biloxi a week ago. Keep an eye on him for 2016, as he could be a deep sleeper suspect heading into the season if he makes the starting rotation.
Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:36:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should not be trusted in any fantasy format for the rest of the year. He won't catch again at all and has only started once since Sept. 8.
Mon, 28 Sep 2015 07:57:39 -0700
Updating an ongoing story, Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) will undergo surgery in October to repair a herniated disc. He will travel Oct. 5 to Los Angeles to see a specialist, and Braun could have surgery as soon as Oct. 8.
Fantasy Tip: Monitor Braun's rehab throughout the winter. He can be dropped in all season-long formats.
Sun, 27 Sep 2015 09:19:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Braun will undergo back surgery this offseason, which should help him entering the 2016 season. Braun could drop on some draft boards if owners are concerned about his injury, but he probably should still be selected in one of the early rounds of drafts.
Sun, 27 Sep 2015 08:28:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Brewers draw Cardinals SP John Lackey ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) who has 25 strikeouts over his past 21 innings and owns a 2.18 ERA through his last 19 starts. It isn't a good spot to start any Milwaukee bats at FantasyScore Sunday.
Sun, 27 Sep 2015 00:29:49 -0700
Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (head), who is coming off a concussion, will not catch again this season. Lucroy was inserted at first base, but the team plans to use 1B Adam Lind for most starts there the rest of the way.
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) may be out of luck for the season, as the team plans on using him as a backup only at first. While he may play in one or two games the rest of the season, you may want to sit him down the rest of the way.

Fantasy Tip: Although Braun ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is batting .357 with four doubles, a home run and seven RBIs this month, his numbers against Garcia are lackluster. He's hitting just .190 with one home run and five RBIs over 42 at-bats in his career versus the southpaw, making him a risky play in FantasyScore.
Sat, 26 Sep 2015 10:48:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is 11-for-33 with three doubles and six RBIs at the plate this month, although he is making his first start since Sept. 8. FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him today so that he can prove he is completely healthy.
