Eric Sogard bats leadoff, collects two more hits

Eric Sogard started at 2B and hit leadoff during the Brewers' 6-1 victory on Saturday. He went 2-for-4 with a double, run and RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard has cooled off since his red-hot first week with the Brewers but is still batting .419. His playing time has also been more limited, however, he did get the start at 2B on Saturday over Jonathan Villar and produced. With Ryan Braun (calf) back on the DL, Sogard could make is way into the starting lineup a few games per week. His fantasy value is limited to NL-only leagues.

Eric Sogard pumps out four more hits, starting again Friday

Eric Sogard produces his second four-hit game in the last three days going 4-for-4 with a double and three RBIs in the Brewers' 4-2 win over the Padres on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard has been on fire since joining the Brewers when Ryan Braun went on the DL going 10-for-17 with two homers and seven RBIs. Manager Craig Counsell stated that he was going to find a way to keep Sogard in the lineup with the team headed to Chicago and he has by starting him in LF batting leadoff against the Cubs in a Friday afternoon tilt. Fantasy owners in deep leagues should continue to ride Sogard while he is hot. With Ryan Bruan expected back soon, Sogard's run might come to an end just as quickly as it started.

Eric Sogard collects four hits in Brewers' win

Eric Sogard went 4-for-4 at the plate with two doubles, a run, and a RBI to help lead the Brewers to a 6-2 victory over the Padres on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard has been on fire since being recalled from the minors when Ryan Braun was placed on the DL. In four games, including three starts, Sogard is 6-for-10 with two doubles, two home runs, four runs, four RBIs and a steal. His run could be short-lived as Braun is expected to return from the DL when his 10 days is up, unless the Brewers decide to keep Sogard over Nick Franklin on the 25-man roster. Sogard is only worth a short-term add in deep NL-only leagues for now.

Eric Sogard promoted to majors

Eric Sogard was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday to replace Ryan Braun on the active roster.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard owned a .330 AVG and .937 OPS at Triple-A, but Colorado Springs is a notorious hitter's haven. Sogard is most likely a depth option for the Brewers and has no fantasy value.

Eric Sogard undergoes knee procedure

Eric Sogard underwent a procedure this week that removed bone spurs in the left knee. There was no damage to the ligaments in his knee, and his return time frame is expected to be four-to-six weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard was expected to lose his reserve role to Chris Coghlan to start the season before he was placed on the DL. He doesn't hold any fantasy value at this point, especially considering the injury.
