Luis Urías News
Milwaukee Brewers infielder Luis Urias is back in the lineup for Monday's matchup with the Cincinnati Reds and right-hander Luis Castillo. Urias is hitting fifth and starting at third base after getting the day off on Sunday. So far this season, he's batting .353 with a .500 on-base percentage and a home run in 22 plate appearances. It's certainly not an ideal matchup against Castillo, but Urias could be worth a look as a streaming option for fantasy managers in deeper leagues.
Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Kolten Wong is not in the starting lineup on Thursday, while third baseman Luis Urias moves to second base and up to the leadoff spot against Cincinnati Reds right-handed rookie Hunter Greene. Urias hit ninth and seventh in his first two games back from the injured list, but he'll move up to leadoff on Thursday with Wong getting a breather. The 24-year-old will have added DFS intrigue out of the leadoff spot against the hard-throwing Greene on Thursday. Meanwhile, Jace Peterson will get the start at the hot corner and will hit eighth for the Brew Crew. Peterson has just seven hits in 44 at-bats with one home run and four RBI and is a desperation DFS selection.
The Milwaukee Brewers activated third baseman Luis Urias (quadriceps) from the 10-day injured list on Monday and designated right-hander Jose Urena for assignment in a corresponding move. Urias will make his season debut on Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds. In seven minor league rehab games with Double-A Biloxi, he went 4-for-27 with a double, no home runs, one RBI and four runs scored. The 24-year-old had been playing regularly on defense on his minor league rehab assignment, so he should return to being Milwaukee's everyday third baseman now that he's healthy. Jace Peterson and Mike Brosseau had been sharing time at third base with Urias sidelined. Urias can provide a nice power profile for fantasy managers after he hit .249/.345/.445 with 23 home runs, 75 RBI and five steals in 150 games last year.
Milwaukee Brewers infielder Luis Urias displayed a bit of his potential last season, slashing .249/.345/.445 with 23 HRs, 75 RBI, 77 runs, and five stolen bases across 150 games. His power output was a result of improving his barrel rate and HardHit% to 9.3% and 40.5%, respectively, both well above his previous marks. Urias also upped his launch angle to 14.2 and meatball swing rate to 76.9%, each career-highs. Though these are average Statcast metrics, his home park of American Family Field will help keep his home run total above 20, but he'll never be an exceptional power hitter. Urias did make more contact, striking out 20.4% of the time after posting a 26.7% rate in 2020, and he improved on his .239 average from 2020 after decreasing his groundball rate to 41.8%. However, the 24-year-old still doesn't connect with the ball enough (25th percentile for average exit velocity) to contribute in that category. After stealing five bags in 2021, it wouldn't be surprising if he's around that total again next season while on a team that runs more than most, but his 40th percentile sprint speed doesn't do him any favors. If he hits near the bottom of the order again, there won't be enough opportunities to supply a fair share of runs and RBI, especially in an average-at-best Brewers lineup. Urias is a fine backup infielder, but he won't be a major factor in any specific category, so his ADP of 171 is pricy.
