Luis Urias went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Urias was activated off the COVID-19 list and made his Brewers debut on Monday. He batted seventh and started at second base. Urias should see everyday at-bats between second base, short stop and designated hitter. He is worth adding in all league formats.

Keston Hiura went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the Brewers' loss to the Twins on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Hiura hit an impressive solo HR off Sergio Romo on a slider that was a few inches off the plate. That is now back-to-back games with home runs and multiple hits for Hiura after a few game stretch where he was struggling at the plate. He DH'd in the game as Luis Urias made his first start for the Brewers at second base so that is something the monitor, but Hiura should be locked in at the heart of the Brewers' lineup whether he is DH or playing in the field.
