Brewers | Tyler Cravy receives start

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:58:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Tyler Cravy was called up from the minors and will start against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Cravy will be as cheap as they come on FantasyScore tonight, and for good reason. It'll be his first major league start after going 5-4 with a 4.04 ERA in nine starts for Class AAA Colorado Springs this year. Stacking your daily lineups with Redbirds hitters could be an effective strategy tonight.

Brewers | Adam Lind out against lefty

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 14:10:43 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Adam Lind (back) is not in the starting lineup versus a left-handed pitcher Monday, June 1. 1B Jason Rogers is starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia.

Fantasy Tip: Lind's back condition is expected to be minor, and he could return to the lineup tomorrow. Rogers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't an attractive option tonight against Garcia. He hits just .184 (7-for-38) with 10 strikeouts in his career against left-handers.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez in cleanup spot

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 14:07:53 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez is in the cleanup spot against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) admittedly said he's more confident and comfortable when hitting fourth, so that shouldn't go unnoticed. The matchup against Garcia favors Gomez, too, although he's just 4-for-27 (.148) against southpaws this year in a limited sample size.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy in two-hole

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 14:02:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) is back in the starting lineup and hitting second in the batting order against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Monday, June 1, after being activated from the disabled list earlier in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) returns after having only 45 at-bats in April before being injured. It's reasonable to be hesitant to trust him on FantasyScore immediately, but the matchup against Garcia isn't a bad one to roll with. Lucroy hit .304 (42-for-138) with one of his 13 home runs against southpaws in 2014.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy activated

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:21:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) last played Monday, April 20, so expecting him to explode out of the gate upon his return is ill-advised. During his four-game rehab assignment, Lucroy went 4-for-16 with three runs and a RBI. FantasyScore players should view him as a high-risk, high-reward option initially, because of his hefty salary. Over time, though, he projects to return to being a top-tier catcher in all fantasy formats.

Brewers | Kyle Lohse struggling at home

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 10:16:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse is getting hit hard for a .946 OPS at home this year, but he's allowing only a .645 OPS on the road. Nine of the 13 home runs he has given up have come at Miller Park in 2015. Lohse could be a trade target for a contending team this summer, but that team would be responsible for the rest of his $11 million salary.

Fantasy Tip: With an ERA of 6.50 on the year and a WHIP of 1.38, you should be staying far away from Lohse ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) on FantasyScore, especially when he pitches at hitter-friendly Miller Park. If he's traded, it should slightly increase his fantasy value.

Brewers | Aramis Ramirez not in the lineup

Sun, 31 May 2015 10:27:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. INF Elian Herrera will be the starting third baseman for the Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Herrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has recorded four RBI in his last six games but may not be the best option on FantasyScore since he is batting .220 this season.

Brewers | Adam Lind out of the lineup

Sun, 31 May 2015 10:17:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. 1B Jason Rogers will be the starting first baseman for the Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Lind ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will be sidelined, so owners should monitor the situation. Rogers ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has slowed down a bit in May and has a .229 batting average this month. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Brewers | Jean Segura leading off

Sun, 31 May 2015 10:10:46 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura is batting first in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has picked up three hits in the two games since he was activated from the disabled list. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Segura in their lineups.

Brewers | Khris Davis placed on DL

Sun, 31 May 2015 10:03:33 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Khris Davis (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 31, because of a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely will miss several weeks because of the injury. Gerardo Parra ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) likely will see most of the playing time in the outfield while Davis is out and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore against certain opponents.

Brewers | Khris Davis set for surgery

Sun, 31 May 2015 06:40:46 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Khris Davis (knee) will undergo surgery Tuesday, June 2, to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Gerardo Parra ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) projects to receive the majority of starts in left field with Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) out. Make sure to check back for an official announcement on Davis' return timetable before dropping him outright, as he is worth stashing in an IR slot. Parra has some upside, and he can chip in across every fantasy category. Still, he is a deep mixed league option, at best. His current FantasyScore salary has a lot of profit room in it, though.

Brewers | Khris Davis exits Saturday

Sat, 30 May 2015 14:47:22 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Khris Davis (knee) left the game Saturday, May 30, with left knee soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has been on a roll with a .467-2-2 line the last week, but Gerardo Parra figures to receive the time if Davis is out. Parra ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a weak matchup play on FantasyScore.

Brewers | Elian Herrera starting Saturday.

Sat, 30 May 2015 12:11:52 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Elian Herrera will start at second base against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, May 30. 2B Hector Gomez is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has four home runs and 14 RBIs in only 89 at-bats but is hitting just .225 on the season. Better options are available in FantasyScore for a comparable price.

Brewers | Tyler Wagner will debut Sunday

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:44:34 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SP Tyler Wagner will make his major league debut against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Wagner should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief in daily contests and an ill-advised start in seasonal formats. He has performed well at Class AA Biloxi and sports a 5-1 record, a 2.01 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP and a 6.4 K/9. However, going from Class AA to the majors is a significant leap.

Brewers | Jean Segura back on roster

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:51:11 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura (finger) is back in the starting roster and hitting sixth on Friday, May 29, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should be given a bit of leeway until he's proven the bat is sufficiently warmed up. SS Luis Sardinas ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) may play a few games here and there as well, so be aware Segura may not get all the starts.
