Milwaukee Brewers

NL Central

Fantasy Impact: Arcia will compete with newly acquired Luis Urias for the starting shortstop role. Arcia struggled at the plate in 2019, slashing .223/.283/.350 with 15 home runs and 59 RBI across 152 games. He is more known for his defense and is an option in NL only formats.

The Padres acquired pitcher Zach Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham from the Brewers in exchange for infielder Luis Urias and pitcher Eric Lauer. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davies goes from hitter-friendly Miller Park to pitcher-friendly Petco Park. He owned a 10-7 record, 3.55 ERA, 1.29 WHIP with 102 strikeouts across 159 2/3 innings last season. Davies will be a part San Diego's rotation in 2020 and should see a slight boost in fantasy due to the ballpark change.

Outfielder Trent Grisham has been traded from the Milwaukee Brewers to the San Diego Padres for infielder Luis Urias, according to a report from ESPN's Jeff Passan. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Grisham and Urias are both highly-touted prospects who have excellent numbers in the minor leagues but did not have a ton of success during their callups to their respective big league clubs last season. Grisham leaves the hitter-friendly confines of Milwaukee for the spacious Petco park, which does not exactly help his fantasy value heading into 2020.

Fantasy Impact: Yelich missed the final three weeks of the season after fracturing his right kneecap. He is expected to be 100% healthy by the start of spring training and will be a top-five pick in almost every fantasy draft next year.

The Brewers declined the 2020 option on Eric Thames' contract. (Source: Robert Murray on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It would've been worth $7.5 million but Milwaukee will instead issue him a $1 million buyout. The 32-year-old posted a .851 OPS with 25 homers last season and is reportedly drawing interest from teams overseas.

Robert Murray of MLB.com reports the Brewers are trading pitcher Chase Anderson to the Blue Jays. (Source: Robert Murray on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson has a club option for 2020 at $8.5 million as well as a $9.5 million option for 2021. Instead of exercising that option it looks as if Milwaukee was more interested in getting something in return for the 31-year-old. Anderson posted a 4.21 ERA in 139 innings a season ago.

The Milwaukee Brewers are picking up catcher Manny Pina's $1.85M option for 2020, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In 179 plate appearances in 2019, Pina hit just .228 with 10 runs scored, seven home runs, and 25 RBIs. He is a defensive-first catcher and is unlikely to be more than a streaming option at catcher, although it is worth noting that the other Milwaukee catcher, Yasmani Grandal, just opted out of his 2020 option.

Fantasy Impact: The 30-year-old backstop will walk away with a $2.25 million buyout. He'll certainly be looking for a multi-year contract this winter after smacking 28 homers and posting an .848 OPS in 2019.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell says Ryan Braun (calf) will start and play left field in Tuesday's Wild Card game. (Source: Sam Fortier on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Braun suffered a calf strain over the weekend but the Brewers aren't too concerned. Except to see Braun hitting in the middle of the Milwaukee lineup versus Max Scherzer and the Nats.

Lorenzo Cain (ankle) says he is planning to play in Tuesday's National League Wild Card game versus the Nats. (Source: Sam Fortier on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cain injured his ankle on a home-plate collision on Saturday and didn't play on Sunday. He'll have to get medical clearance before Milwaukee puts him in their lineup Tuesday night.

The Brewers have named Brandon Woodruff as their starter for Tuesday's National League Wild Card game versus the Nationals. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Woodruff has only made two appearances since returning from a two-month oblique injury but has been a reliable starter all season. The 26-year-old posted a 3.62 ERA in 121 2/3 innings this year. It's likely he only lasts 2-3 innings tomorrow since his arm strength isn't built up right now.


Hernan Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to Colorado.

Fantasy Impact: Perez's path to playing time was largely blocked by the likes of Mike Moustakas and Keston Hiura, but he continues to serve a valuable bench role for Milwaukee. He finishes the regular season batting .228 with eight homers and 18 RBI in 232 at-bats.

Adrian Houser tossed four scoreless innings while allowing one hit and one walk against the Rockies on Sunday. He struck out five.

Fantasy Impact: Houser departed too early to earn a win, and the Rockies eventually scored four unanswered runs later in the game. Houser now owns a 3.72 ERA alongside a 117:37 K:BB in 111.1 innings.

Category: Game Recaps


Josh Hader allowed two hits and a run while striking out two in one inning in Saturday's loss to the Rockies, blowing the save.

Fantasy Impact: After recording the first two outs, Sam Hilliard took Hader deep to tie the game. This was Hader's seventh blown save of the season. He owns a 2.62 ERA and 0.81 WHIP with 138 strikeouts in 75.2 innings.

Category: Game Recaps


Gio Gonzalez allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.2 scoreless innings Saturday against the Rockies, but did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez served as a traditional started in this contest, after being utilized as a bulk reliever in his past several appearances. This season, he is 3-2 with a 3.50 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and has 78 strikeouts in 87.1 innings.

Keston Hiura went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Hiura's hot hitting continues, and will hope to keep things rolling into the playoffs. On the season, Hiura is batting .309 with 19 homers, 49 RBI, and 51 runs scored.

Category: Game Recaps


Jordan Lyles (12-8) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Lyles continues to perform well, generating 12 outs via the groundball or strikeout. He has now allowed two or fewer runs in 10 of his 11 starts as a Brewer.

Category: Game Recaps


Mike Moustakas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Moustakas broke the 1-1 tie in the seventh inning with a solo blast. The Brewers will hope that he can keep up his impressive statistical season, and carry them into the playoffs and beyond. He's batting .262 with 35 home runs and 85 RBI.

Category: Game Recaps


Drew Pomeranz picked up the save Tuesday, tossing two scoreless innings with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: This was Pomeranz's second save of the season, and also the second of his career. He's been pretty effective in September so far, posting a 2.84 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

Category: Game Recaps


Travis Shaw went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: This was Shaw's seventh home run in what has been a simply dreadful season. He doesn't seem to have a clear path to playing time moving forward, with Mike Moustakas manning third base, and Keston Hiura making a splash at second.
