Brewers | Scooter Gennett back from DL

Tue, 05 May 2015 11:22:46 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (hand) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 5, and OF Logan Schafer was optioned to Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

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.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy untouchable

Tue, 05 May 2015 07:23:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is a player the Brewers aren't willing to move.

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

Brewers | Jean Segura expected back Tues.

Mon, 04 May 2015 21:20:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (head) is expected to return to the starting lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the Los Angeles Dodgers, manager Craig Counsell said Monday, May 4.

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.

Brewers | Ryan Braun hits Kershaw well

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:43:25 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is hitting .300 (10-for-30) with a home run in his career against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

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.

Brewers | Kyle Lohse has been hurt by LA

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:24:37 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse is 2-4 with a 4.35 ERA in 12 career games (10 starts) against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

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.

Brewers | Jean Segura out of starting lineup

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:38:05 -0700

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.

Brewers | Craig Counsell named manager

Mon, 04 May 2015 04:23:20 -0700

Former MLB player and current Milwaukee Brewers front-office member Craig Counsell will be the new Brewers manager, effective immediately.

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.

Brewers | Jean Segura hit in head

Sun, 03 May 2015 17:42:10 -0700

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.

Brewers | Jean Segura fills out the box score

Sun, 03 May 2015 05:45:00 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura went 4-for-5 with a triple, a run, two RBI and a stolen base against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, May 2.

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.

Brewers | Ryan Braun on a power surge

Sat, 02 May 2015 19:21:12 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs Saturday, May 2, and he has four home runs in his last four games.

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.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez exits Saturday game

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:08:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (hamstring) left his team's game Saturday, May 2. He had been activated from the 15-day disabled list.

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.

Brewers | Mike Fiers continues Wrigley mastery

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:52:49 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers has six hits, one earned run, three walks and 26 strikeouts in his last two starts at Wrigley Field.

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.

Brewers | Aramis Ramirez expects to play Sunday

Sat, 02 May 2015 12:36:53 -0700

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.
