Brewers' Eric Thames: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

The Brewers are facing a lefty in Steven Brault, so Thames will give way to Jesus Aguilar at first base, as is the norm. Thames saw a seven-game hitting streak come to an end Thursday. He's batting .308/.396/.679 with seven homers since the start of June and seems to be locked into the heart of the order against right-handed pitching.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run Tuesday against the Reds.

Thames took Tanner Roark deep in the fifth inning to record his 13th homer of the season. He's come alive at the dish of late, homering in three of his last four starts. While his playing time remains inconsistent, Thames has managed an impressive .273/.387/.545 line across 225 plate appearances for the campaign.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Carries offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Pirates.

His solo shot in the fourth inning snapped an 11-game homer drought for Thames, although he only started six of those 11 contests. On the season, the 32-year-old is slashing .270/.383/.522 with 11 home runs and 34 RBI in 75 games.

June 20, 2019 02:12 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: On bench again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Padres.

As expected, Thames remains stuck on the bench with yet another lefty (Matt Strahm) on the mound for San Diego. He'll have a good chance to start the final four games of the week, however, as the Reds will throw four straight righties. Yasmani Grandal gets the start at first base in Thames' stead Wednesday.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Sits against another lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brewers' Eric Thames: Finds power stroke
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 2-for-5 with a double and a home run in Wednesday's victory over the Astros.

Thames went nearly the entire month of May without a home run, but he has picked up in the pace of that department of late, hitting four home runs over nine games since May 30. He is platooning with Jesus Aguilar at first base, but just three southpaws have started against the Brewers since May 17, which has allowed Thames to play nearly every day. Thanks to his recent hot stretch, his OPS now sits at a healthy .865 for the season.

June 9, 2019 10:56 AM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames will sit Sunday against southpaw Steven Brault and the Pirates.

Thames hasn't started against a lefty all season. The platoon role has suited him well, as he's posted a strong .254/.377/.471 slash line. Jesus Aguilar takes over at first base.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Launches eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored Friday night against the Pirates.

Thames hammered a blast to right field in the second inning, registering his eighth long ball of the season. The 32-year-old has collected a base knock in seven of the last nine contests, collecting four extra-base hits during that stretch.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Thames will take a seat in favor of platoon mate Jesus Aguilar with southpaw Caleb Smith on the bump for Miami in the series finale. Though he's outperformed Aguilar this season, Thames' elevated strikeout rate (35.7 percent) has often made him prone to slumps that render him a batting-average risk for fantasy managers.

June 3, 2019 11:04 AM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Posts three RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 2-for-3 with a double, home run, three RBI, two runs and a walk during a 4-2 victory against the Pirates on Sunday.

The 32-year-old smashed a homer over the right field wall at PNC Park to give the Brewers a three-run lead in the third. He added an insurance run on a double in the fifth too. With the two-hit afternoon, Thames extended his hit streak to six games. He is batting .254 with seven home runs, 24 RBI, 25 runs and one steal in 122 at-bats this season.

June 1, 2019 05:32 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not starting Friday against the Pirates.

Thames and Jesus Aguilar have mostly been platooning over the last 20 games, but Aguilar has also received a few starts against righties, including versus Chris Archer on Friday. Thames' .793 OPS easily outpaces Aguilar's .587 mark, so there seems to be little reason to fear him sliding back into a bench role.
