Eric Thames reaches base three times in Brewers' loss

Eric Thames, who left Sunday's game early with leg cramps, was in the Brewers' starting lineup batting second on Tuesday. He went 1-for-2 at the plate with a walk, HBP and a steal in the Brewers' 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

After a red-hot April batting .345 with 11 home runs, Thames has come back to earth in May with a .250 average and two long balls. Despite slowing down in May, Thames is still hitting the ball hard 41% of the time this month. He will have a hard time duplicating his strong April but is still a solid 1B that should be started in all leagues.

Eric Thames (hamstring) exits Sunday's game early

Eric Thames left Sunday's game with the Cubs early due to cramping in his legs. He came up limping during a RBI groundout in the fifth inning and was removed from the game going 0-for-3 with a RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Thames missed time recently with a strep throat and is now battling through calf and hamstring soreness and cramps. No news on a DL stint, so he should be considered day-to-day leading up to the Brewers upcoming six-game homestand starting on Tuesday versus the Blue Jays.

Eric Thames back in the lineup Friday

Eric Thames is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Thames had been dealing with strep throat and this is his first start since Sunday, though he did pinch hit on Thursday. Thames is a must start when healthy.

Eric Thames dealing with strep throat

Eric Thames has missed the Brewers last two games because he has been dealing with a case of strep throat.

Fantasy Impact

Thames is also questionable for tomorrow's game, according to reporters. This should not be a long term issue and Thames could return to the lineup Wednesday or Thursday. Thames is a must start when healthy, as he remains tied for the NL lead in home runs with 13.

Eric Thames not in lineup for Brewers Monday

Eric Thames is not in the lineup Monday night for the Milwaukee Brewers' matchup with the San Diego Padres and starter Luis Perdomo, according to a lineup released by the team on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

This appears to be just a regular day off for Thames, though it has been reported that he had some tightness in and soreness in his legs. Thames has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball through the first month and a half of the season, so monitor his status for Tuesday, but it sounds like he is fine and is just getting some rest. He has 13 home runs and an incredible slash line of .315 / .435 / .693 through his first 36 games.
