Brewers | Taylor Jungmann beats Pirates again

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 20:11:48 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann allowed one run on three hits over six innings in a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Sept. 3, and he is 3-0 with a 1.35 ERA in three starts against Pittsburgh this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jungmann ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) owns a 2.42 ERA for the year, and he is providing great production for the price at FantasyScore.

Brewers | Hernan Perez bangs out three hits

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 19:59:53 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Hernan Perez went 3-for-3 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in a 5-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: His big games have been few and far between, and Perez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is nothing more than a shot-in-the-dark play at FantasyScore.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang sitting vs. Brewers

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 14:03:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. SS Jordy Mercer is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has an uninspiring .610 OPS this season and is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Thursday. Kang ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is having a strong second half with 25 runs, nine home runs, 20 RBI and a .315/.378/.577 slash line. He remains a nice daily play in favorable matchups.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen resting vs. Brewers

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 13:56:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. 2B Josh Harrison draws into the lineup and is batting second against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) posted a .348/.470/.609 slash line with 18 runs, five home runs, 19 RBI and two stolen bases in August, and he projects to finish the season strong. Harrison ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been relegated to a bench role of late, but he stands as a viable value option for FantasyScore players Thursday. He does sport an underwhelming .547 OPS since returning from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 21, though.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett sitting again

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 11:57:18 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Thursday, Sept. 3. 2B Elian Herrera is starting at the keystone and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is batting just .236 (45-for-191) with five home runs and 24 RBI this year and is strictly a source of salary cap relief on FantasyScore tonight.

Brewers | Adam Lind out vs. southpaw

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 11:24:50 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind is not in the lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Thursday, Sept. 3. 1B Jason Rogers is starting at first base and is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano owns the highest K/BB (strikeout-to-walk rate) of any starting pitcher today on a small slate of games, and Rogers ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .222 (12-for-54) with two home runs against lefties this year. Those aren't the kind of numbers you're looking for from a deep sleeper on FantasyScore.

Brewers | Taylor Jungmann holding down opponents

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:53:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann is set to start Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He allowed three hits with five strikeouts June 9 against the Pirates to win his debut, and opponents are hitting just .227 against him this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jungmann ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) also knocked off the Pirates July 19, allowing one run with five strikeouts in seven innings. He is a solid play despite a tough matchup with Francisco Liriano.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy extends hit streak

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:52:44 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-5 with a run scored and three RBIs Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Pittsburgh Pirates to extend his hitting streak to 10 games, tying a career high.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .450 (18-for-40) with three homers, 14 RBIs and 11 runs scored during his outstanding run to make him a slam-dunk play in FantasyScore.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett not in lineup

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:47:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. 2B Elian Herrera is starting at second base and hitting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke. SS Jean Segura moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a desperation sleeper pick on FantasyScore while hitting low in the lineup. Segura ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) becomes much more attractive as a value play in the leadoff spot. Segura is batting .302 (32-for-106) against left-handers this season.

Brewers | Zach Davies starting Wednesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:51:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies will make his major league debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Davies is a decent prospect that came to Milwaukee in the Gerardo Parra deal, and he should be added immediately in NL-only leagues, at least, now that he should have a starting spot for the season's final month. Avoiding him against a talented Bucs lineup on FantasyScore is the right move, though.

Brewers | Zach Davies joining the rotation

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:40:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies will be a mainstay in the starting rotation throughout September, according to manager Craig Counsell.

Fantasy Tip: Davies pitched well with Class AAA Norfolk before joining the Milwaukee organization (2.84 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 8.1 K/9), but he has struggled over his five starts for Class AAA Colorado Springs. Still, he is worth an immediate grab in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and he might even prove to be a viable matchup play at FantasyScore and streamer option in all seasonal leagues.

Brewers | Tyler Cravy chucks bullpen session

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:23:02 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Tyler Cravy (elbow) threw a bullpen session of strictly fastballs Tuesday, Sept. 1. He is scheduled to throw another session Thursday, Sept. 3, using all his pitches with the hope of being activated from the disabled list Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Cravy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) owns a 6.67 ERA and a 5.27 FIP over six appearances and five starts this season, so you're digging deep starting him in any fantasy format. He could prove to be a matchup play at FantasyScore and for NL-only and cavernous mixed owners before the season is over, but you'll likely want to stay clear until he returns and proves himself on the mound.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy heating up

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 19:36:21 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-3 with two RBI in a 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, Aug. 30, extending his hitting streak to eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has 10 RBI and nine runs scored during the hitting streak, and he is offering great production at the price at FantasyScore right now.

Brewers | Francisco Rodriguez won't be dealt

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:44:01 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez was claimed on revocable waivers by an unknown team last week but the Brewers pulled him back. As a result, he will not be traded this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has saved 30 games in 31 opportunities while posting a 2.58 ERA in 47 games for Milwaukee this season. However, he has struggled of late, posting a 6.75 ERA through 9 1/3 innings during the month of August.

Brewers | No Adam Lind vs. Cincinnati

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:22:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Jonathan Lucroy is starting at first base, and C Martin Maldonado is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Lind ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The veteran is batting just .215 against lefties this season, so it is an opportune time to provide him with a game off. Since you can only play one of Lucroy ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) or Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) at FantasyScore Sunday, it is worth spending up to target Lucroy who has 16 runs, four home runs and 11 RBI wiht a .866 OPS in August.
