Daniel Vogelbach went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: Vogelbach provided a key run on a home run in the top of the fourth inning. He's been struggling this year, batting .194 with six RBI and a .640 OPS.

Josh Hader (3-0) earned the win Sunday against the Marlins, striking out two in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Impact: Hader appeared in a tie game and cruised through the ninth in 15 pitches. He has a sparkling 0.71 ERA and 0.71 WHIP across 12.2 innings, to go along with 24 strikeouts and seven saves.

Brett Anderson threw three scoreless innings against the Marlins on Sunday. He allowed two hits and one walk while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson was the beginning of a Brewers' tandem that stifled the Marlins bats on Sunday. This was Anderson's first start since returning from the injured list, which likely explains the short outing. Overall, he has a 3.54 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 20.1 innings this season.

Kolten Wong went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: Wong had been 0-for-12 in his last three games, so it was great to see his bat come alive. Since returning from an oblique injury, Wong is batting .333 with two homers and 10 runs scored in 16 games.

Avisail Garcia went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: This was Garcia's first homer since April 18, and his fourth of the season. Over his last nine games, Garcia is 15-for-30 with eight RBI. He's worth a look in five outfielder leagues.

Adrian Houser (3-3) picked up the win Saturday against the Marlins, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks in six innings. He struck out 10.

Fantasy Impact: Houser turned in his second consecutive quality start, hurling 62 of 94 pitches for strikes. He also helped his cause by blasting a solo homer in the fourth inning. He'll take a 3.44 ERA and 31:11 K:BB into his next outing.

Corbin Burnes will rejoin the team and throw a bullpen session on Monday, according to Brewers manager Craig Counsell. (Source: Tom on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Counsell added that Burnes could be activated from the COVID-19 injured list later in the week. Burnes landed on the injured list on April 29.

Brent Suter (2-2) took the loss Friday against the Marlins, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk in 2.1 innings. He struck out two.

Fantasy Impact: Suter was called on for the spot-start, as the Brewers' rotation continues to be decimated by injuries. He pitched into the third before exiting with a trainer. The 31-year-old has pitched to a 3.79 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 19 innings this season. He'll likely continue in his relief role.

Brandon Woodruff (2-1) took the tough-luck loss Thursday against the Phillies, allowing one run on two hits and two walks in 6.2 innings. He struck out 11.

Fantasy Impact: Woodruff was dominant on Thursday, overcoming two walks in the first inning and striking out 11 batters. Improbably, he was out-pitched by his counterpart Zack Wheeler, who tossed a complete game shutout. Woodruff owns a 1.73 ERA and 51:11 K:BB in 41.2 innings this season. He'll take on the Cardinals next week.

Brewers OF prospect Garrett Mitchell went 2-for-2 with a walk, two runs scored, and two stolen bases in Wednesday's High-A game.

Fantasy Impact: A first-round selection from the 2020 draft, Mitchell has a strong hit tool and plus speed. The biggest knock on his game is his power, but there's still 20-homer upside here. The UCLA product could rise up prospect rankings in a hurry if he continues this hot start.

Tyrone Taylor went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Taylor pinch hit for Freddy Peralta in the fifth inning and delivered with his third homer of the season. Taylor ought to be a bench bat for Milwaukee, but should see playing time with Christian Yelich (back) on the injured list.

Freddy Peralta (3-1) was saddled with his first loss of the season Wednesday against the Phillies, allowing five runs on four hits and three walks in four innings. He struck out eight.

Fantasy Impact: All five runs crossed the plate in a messy first inning that included a Didi Gregorius grand slam. Peralta was able to steady the ship from that point, but the Brewers' offense could not climb out of the hole. He'll take a 3.38 ERA and 53:17 K:BB in 32 innings into his next outing.

Jackie Bradley Jr. went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley found himself back in the lineup with Christian Yelich (back) returning to the injured list. Bradley should continue to see playing time, but he's slashing just .188/.248/.347 across 109 plate appearances this season.

Eric Lauer (1-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Phillies, allowing six runs (two earned) on eight hits and no walks in six innings. He struck out seven.

Fantasy Impact: Lauer surrendered three homers, which accounted for five of the six runs he allowed. His stat line was spared by a Travis Shaw error at third base. Lauer has pitched to a 1.64 ERA in two starts in 2021, with a 10:2 K:BB in 11 innings. Lauer would start next against the Marlins this weekend if he sticks in the rotation.

After returning from the IL on Monday, Christian Yelich is set to spend at least another 10 days on there. Manager Craig Counsell said "there's something else we haven't diagnosed," meaning this could be a longer absence than just the 10 days. (Source: Adam McCalvy on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is certainly sad news for fantasy owners of the former NL MVP. Yelich is hitting a remarkable .353 with an OPS at .843 but has played just 10 games this season. OF Billy McKinney should continue seeing playing time in Yelich's absence and is in the lineup on Tuesday night vs. the Phillies.

LHP Wade LeBlanc signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers on Tuesday and was assigned to Triple-A. (Source: Milwaukee Brewers on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: LeBlanc was released by the Orioles in April and ultimately ends up in Milwaukee on a minor-league deal. The 36-year-old owns a 9.45 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, and six strikeouts across six 2/3 innings in 2021. LeBlanc will serve as pitching depth for the Brewers if he gets the call to the big leagues.

Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk, and another run scored in Monday's loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Cain wasted no time in his return from a quad injury, homering in his first at-bat since April 13. The veteran outfielder is now 5-for-30 with three homers and five RBI in eight games this season.

The Brewers optioned 1B/2B Keston Hiura to the team's alternate training site. (Source: Robert Murray on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 24-year-old was hitting a brutal .152/.247/.266 prior to this move. A former top prospect, Hiura also has 32 strikeouts in 79 at-bats. He has struggled mightily at the plate ever since bursting onto the scene as a rookie in 2019. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues can now feel free to finally move on (if they haven't already).

Jacob Nottingham went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Nottingham was recalled to replace an injured Omar Narvaez, and made an immediate impact. Nottingham may stick around while the Brewers try to overcome the rash of injuries that have plagued the team.

Alec Bettinger (0-1) was demolished in his MLB debut Sunday against the Dodgers, allowing 11 earned runs on 11 hits and two walks in four innings. He did not strike anyone out.

Fantasy Impact: Bettinger was called up to replace Corbin Burnes in the Brewers' rotation. He allowed two grand slams in the first two innings, and could not limit the damage. The Brewers' bullpen was used extensively in their extra-innings win Saturday, so it's likely Bettinger was left out there due to a lack of fresh arms. It remains to be seen if Bettinger will stick in the rotation for another turn.
