Brewers' Eric Thames: Crushes 25th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rockies.

Thames' only hit of the night was a big one, as he opened the scoring with the long ball off Rockies starter Chi Chi Gonzalez. This is the second time Thames has reached the 25-homer plateau. The first baseman has added 61 RBI and 67 runs scored in 148 games this year.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Back in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames (hamstring) is starting at first base and hitting fifth Friday night against the Rockies.

Thames was lifted from Thursday's contest with bilateral hamstring discomfort, but the Brewers stated after the game that his removal was precautionary. He'll be right back in the mix for Friday's series opener.

Brewers' Eric Thames: No concern over injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said there's no concern regarding Thames' hamstring cramps, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Thames exited Thursday's game prior to the second inning with bilateral hamstring discomfort, though it sounds like his removal was more precautionary. His legs have apparently been bothering him for a while, so the Brewers didn't want to take any chances. Thames should be considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's series opener against the Rockies.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Dealing with hamstring discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames exited Thursday's game against the Reds with bilateral hamstring discomfort.

It's worth noting that Thames told reporters prior to Thursday's game that he was dealing with some notable aches and pains, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The first baseman should be considered day-to-day; he'll likely undergo further evaluation before the Brewers determine his status for the team's final series of the regular season.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Exits early Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames (undisclosed) exited Thursday's game against the Reds in the second inning, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

It's unclear what forced Thames' early exit, though he said he prior to the game that he was dealing with some notable aches and pains, per Haudricourt, and appeared to tweak his hamstring in Wednesday's contest. Yasmani Grandal took over at first base for Thames, with Manny Pina entering the game to play catcher.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Tallies 24th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Reds.

Thames took Tyler Mahle deep in the first inning to record his 24th homer of the season. He's delivered production in bunches of late, smacking three home runs and scoring four runs in his last three starts. Despite spending much of the season as a part-time player, Thames has racked up 60 RBI and 65 runs scored to go along with his 24 long balls in 447 plate appearances.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Hits two homers versus Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in a 4-3 victory against the Pirates on Sunday.

The 32-year-old hasn't displayed much power since the All-Star break, and he hadn't gone deep since Sept. 8 before his first homer Sunday. He came into the afternoon only hitting .204 this month as well, but he's been improving lately, as Thames has three multi-hit games since Sept. 15. Overall, he's batting .250 with 23 home runs, 59 RBI, 63 runs and three steals in 376 at-bats this season.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Thames was held out Thursday with the Brewers facing a left-handed starter, and that will be the case again Friday with the Brewers taking on a lefty -- Steven Brault -- for the second straight day. Yasmani Grandal will start at first base Friday night.

September 19, 2019 01:20 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in Thursday's lineup against the Padres.

He will head to the bench with lefty Joey Lucchesi on the hill for San Diego. Tyler Austin is starting at first base, but Thames should be one of the first players to come into the game for Milwaukee once a righty comes in out of the Padres' bullpen.

September 12, 2019 10:56 AM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Out against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in Thursday's lineup against the Marlins.

He will take a seat with southpaw Caleb Smith on the hill for Miami. Tyler Austin is starting at first base and hitting fifth.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Rare homer off lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday in the Brewers' 8-5 win over the Cubs.

Thames padded the Brewers' lead with a sixth-inning shot off Jon Lester, marking just the second home run he's slugged off a lefty this season. Though he overcame the matchup Sunday, Thames is still expected to sit against southpaws on most occasions, especially with September callup Tyler Austin -- who mashed a three-run homer off the bench -- emerging as a potential platoon mate.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Draws starting nod Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Thames is included in the Brewers' lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs. He'll start at first base and bat fifth.

The lineup the Brewers released earlier in the day initially included Tyler Austin at first base, but manager Craig Counsell apparently decided to make a late adjustment to the starting nine. Thames will now make a rare entry into the lineup with a southpaw (Jon Lester) on the bump for the opposition.

Brewers' Eric Thames: Sitting versus southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Thames will head to the bench for the third time in the series as veteran lefty Jon Lester takes the mound for Chicago. Tyler Austin receives the start at first base in his place.

September 6, 2019 04:48 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in Friday's lineup against the Cubs.

He will sit against southpaw Cole Hamels. Tyler Austin gets the start at first base and will hit fifth. The Brewers face a righty (Yu Darvish) Saturday, so Thames should be back in the lineup for that contest.

September 5, 2019 03:52 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in Thursday's lineup against the Cubs.

He predictably heads to the bench with lefty Jose Quintana on the hill for Chicago. Yasmani Grandal starts at first base.

September 4, 2019 11:52 AM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Fast start to September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and a double in Tuesday's victory over the Astros.

September has been good to Thames thus far, as he has raised his OPS from .860 to .874 in just three games. Thames and Yasmani Grandal have formed a platoon at first base since the Brewers traded Jesus Aguilar at the trade deadline, with Thames starting at the position in every game against a right-handed starter, and Grandal starting there against all lefties, since Aug. 2.

August 31, 2019 12:40 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Out against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in the lineup Saturday against the Cubs.

Thames is sitting for a second straight game with another lefty in Cole Hamels starting for the Cubs on Saturday. Yasmani Grandal is covering first base in his stead, with Manny Pina getting the nod behind the dish.

August 30, 2019 02:52 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Sitting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Thames started the last three games against the Cardinals and went 3-for-10 with a double and a triple, but he'll take a seat Friday with southpaw Jose Quintana on the mound for the Cubs. Yasmani Grandal will cover first base while Manny Pina starts at catcher. Thames could find himself on the bench again Saturday with another lefty (Cole Hamels) scheduled to start for Chicago.

August 25, 2019 11:28 AM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Out versus southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Thames hit solo homers in each of the first two games of the series, but he'll return to the bench Sunday with left-hander Robbie Ray taking the mound for Arizona. Yasmani Grandal will start at first base while Manny Pina enters the lineup behind the plate.

August 24, 2019 11:32 PM
Brewers' Eric Thames: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Diamondbacks.

The 32-year-old has gone deep in back-to-back games, giving him 19 homers and 51 RBI on the year. Thames will still sit against most lefties, but he should see enough playing time down the stretch to be useful in shallower fantasy formats if he keeps showcasing his power.
