Brewers' Ryan Braun: Stationed at first base against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braun will man first base and hit third in the order against the Cubs on Thursday.

He is making just his first start at the position since the Brewers' opening series in San Diego, but manager Craig Counsell stated that Braun will share time alongside Jesus Aguilar at the spot while Eric Thames is on the DL (thumb), according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. Over 22 games this season, Braun is hitting .263/.301/.513 with five home runs, 15 RBI and three stolen bases.

Brewers' Jesus Aguilar: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar is not in the lineup against the Cubs on Thursday.

Aguilar will retreat to the bench in favor of Ryan Braun, who will be making his first start at first base since the second game of the season. Looking ahead, expect Aguilar to see a decent amount of time at first base with Eric Thames (thumb) sidelined for an extended period of time.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina is out of the lineup against the Cubs on Thursday.

Pina will get the night off following two starts since he returned from the disabled list (calf) prior to Tuesday's game. In his place, Jett Bandy will catch Chase Anderson and bat eighth.

Brewers' Jacob Barnes: Tosses 1.1 innings Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes pitched 1.1 innings in Wednesday's victory over the Royals.

Barnes was not his sharpest, allowing two hits and walking a batter while not striking anyone out, but most importantly, he escaped the outing without allowing an earned run. Barnes notched a two-inning save last week against the Reds, but he has pitched in two games since and entered those games in the sixth and seventh innings, so he's not on the verge of taking over the closer duties for the Brewers. Given the way manager Craig Counsell has used his relievers of late, though, it's not out of the question that Barnes could be used next time a save situation arises.

Brewers' Josh Hader: Used situationally Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hader recorded the final two eights of the eighth inning -- both via strikeout -- in Wednesday's victory over the Royals.

In the latest example of manager Craig Counsell not sticking to traditional bullpen roles, Hader was used in a key spot and then promptly removed despite not experiencing any issues -- likely because Counsell had an eye on the Brewers' as-big-as-it-gets-for-April series with the Cubs that starts Thursday. Hader is giving fantasy players exactly what they want in the strikeout and ratio departments; just don't expect him to pile up the save numbers most relievers of his caliber do.
