Eric Thames strikeouts four times in Brewers' loss

Eric Thames went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in the Brewers' 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames does have three multi-hit games since the All-Star break but he is also striking out at an alarming rate with 13 strikeouts in 26 plate appearances in his last six games. This is a continuing trend for Thames who has struck out 36.5% of the time since the beginning of June and has just a .204 batting average during that stretch. He will still offer some power but he could start losing more playing time to Jesus Aguliar.

Eric Thames strikes out three times on Friday

Eric Thames went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts, two walks and a run scored during the Brewers' 9-6 win over the Phillies to open the second half of the season on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Thames has struck out eight times over his last four games. He struck out 37.1% of the time in June and saw his batting average plummet to .163 during that month. He is batting .292 through seven games in July but will need to cut down on the strikeouts to maintain that mark.

Eric Thames collects two hits on Sunday

Eric Thames drew the start at 1B during the series finale against the Yankees' and right-hander Masahiro Tanaka on Sunday. Thames went 2-for-5 with a pair of singles and two runs during the Brewers' 5-3 win.

Fantasy Impact

Thames hits the All-Star break with a .248 average, 23 home runs, 43 RBIs and 58 runs scored. He has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners that took a chance on him during the draft. He has cooled off since the opening month of the season but is still posting strong fantasy numbers in homers, RBIs and runs.

Eric Thames doesn't play versus lefty on Friday

Eric Thames was held out of the starting lineup on Friday against Yankees' lefty Jordon Montgomery. Jesus Aguilar played 1B and had a monster game.

Fantasy Impact

Thames has received two straight days off with the Brewers' facing left-handed Montgomery's (Mike and Jordan). Thames is batting .214 with six home runs in 70 at-bats against left-handed pitchers this season. With Aguliar's strong play and a healthy Brewers' lineup, Thames may continue to sit against lefties. Look for Thames to return to the lineup on Friday when the Brewers face Yankees' right-hander Luis Severino.

Eric Thames smacks 21st homer Sunday

Eric Thames went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two runs scored Sunday against the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Thames' season has been one defined by hot and cold streaks, and he had been mired in a 5-for-49 slump over the last ten days prior to this game. Thames owners can only hope that this home run signifies another hot stretch.
