Milwaukee Brewers news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 13:45:19 -0700
Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (undisclosed) is out of the lineup due to undisclosed physical ailments Monday, April 27, for the second straight game. Braun requested the day off Sunday, April 26, due to a physical issue not related to his right thumb. OF Gerardo Parra is hitting third in the lineup once again.
Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) owners should be worried at this point, since he has just one extra-base hit and is hitting .230 (14-for-61) to start the season. Another injury could easily be the culprit. Stay away from him at FantasyScore until we know more. Parra ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) continues to benefit and should be a fine buy-low option for daily gamers tonight against Cincinnati Reds starter Jason Marquis, especially in the three-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is receiving his second straight start and did go 2-for-4 in his last game. Schafer is only hitting .190 this season, and owners should be able to find better options to use.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Braun ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is dealing with an injury, so owners should monitor the situation over the next day or two. Logan Schafer ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will take his place in the lineup but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has received a few starts this season but only has four hits in 19 at-bats and only two RBI. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 10:00:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only batting .118 so far this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:59:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will receive a day off after playing in each of the last four games. Centeno has not received any playing time this season and should not be a starting option.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:25:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has struggled early this season and is receiving a day off. Hector Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start at third base Sunday and is not a great option for FantasyScore owners.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 09:12:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Braun ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) asked for a day off but should return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Logan Schafer ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will take his place in the starting lineup but should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (hamstring) was able to hit on the field and run on a treadmill Friday, April 24. Manager Ron Roenicke said he hopes Gomez will be able to return a little after the 15 days on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Gomez appears to be making good progress but probably will have to play in a few rehab games before returning. Gerardo Parra ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been in the starting lineup while Gomez is sidelined but is not a great option on FantasyScore since he has only one hit in his last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Parra ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) was much more successful against righties in 2014, going 118-for-432 (.273) with eight of his nine home runs, and it helps that he's hitting atop the Brewers lineup. Parra also has a home run in his only at-bat against Martinez. Still, Parra is more of a dice roll at FantasyScore tonight against the nasty Martinez.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Logan Schafer is starting in center field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey Thursday, April 23. OF Gerardo Parra is taking the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a hit in 12 at-bats on the young season, and he shouldn't be of much consideration to FantasyScore owners on this Thursday. Look elsewhere to fill your outfield slots.

Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .205-hitter, with his batting average dropping to .171 against lefties. He won't be worth consideration for FantasyScore contests with LHP Jason Marquis starting for the Reds.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:26:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rogers is not an option on FantasyScore and for good reason. Owners will need to look outside of Milwaukee for their third baseman Tuesday.
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:17:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Herrera is a career .261-hitter in the major leagues, but got off to an excellent start for the Brewers Class-AAA affiliate, with a .422 batting average through 11 games and 52 plate appearances. Herrera is unlikely to carry his hot-start over to the majors, but could make for a short-term, cheap option on FantasyScore.

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) will have an initial timetable of four-to-six weeks to recover from his broken toe, according to manager Ron Roenicke, Tuesday, April 21. C Martin Maldonado is next up on the depth chart and will see plenty of playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .222 hitter, but has 16 home runs in just 537 career plate appearances. Maldonado will be an option for Lucroy owners looking for some extra power and have the availability to take a hit to their batting average. Lucroy needs to be stashed whether or not owners have an available spot on their disabled list.
