Eric Thames swipes a base in Sunday’s win

Eric Thames went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in the Brewers’ 3-2 win over the Braves on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames is hitting .239 with an .834 OPS in limited action this year. Milwaukee has plenty of options for first base right now so Thames will need to stay hot to remain in the lineup. He’s worth owning in deeper leagues.

Eric Thames homers in loss Wednesday

Eric Thames went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the Brewers' 5-2 loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames has been splitting playing time with Jesus Aguilar lately, and since he's performing better than Aguilar Thames might overtake him completely. For now consider this a 50/50 time share, giving Thames decent deep league value.

Eric Thames hits three-run, pinch-hit home run Sunday

Eric Thames went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, three-run home run in the Brewers' 6-5 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames tied up the game in the eighth before Josh Hader blew it in the ninth, but the powerful first baseman now has two home runs in his last three days. He isn't a great hitter by any means, but has decent power and could earn more playing time considering how bad Jesus Aguilar has been this season.

Eric Thames hits third home run Friday

Eric Thames went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the Brewers' 5-3 loss to the Dodgers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The home run was Thames' third, and that gives him three more than the scuffling Jesus Aguilar. Thames hasn't been that good in his opportunities this season, he has a .289 OBP and 17:1 K:BB ratio in 38 PA, but he has been better than Aguilar. He could begin to steal playing time against right-handed starters, which would give Thames deep league value.

Eric Thames has two-hit day Monday

Eric Thames went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Brewers' 10-7 win over the Cardinals on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames got the start over Jesus Aguilar in this one, and took advantage of the opportunity. He has a .207 ISO and two home runs on the year, but has a ghastly 43.8% strikeout rate in 32 PA. Aguilar hasn't hit well to start the year, but Thames isn't doing enough to push him for playing time.
