Milwaukee Brewers Roster

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Joey Wiemer went 4-for-4 at the plate in a 10-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday. Wiemer's incredible outing included two home runs and five RBI. The 24-year-old is hitting .231/.299/.429 with eight homers, 23 RBI, and nine swiped bags this season. Fantasy managers should be encouraged as the rookie is showing signs of being an offensive threat early in his career, as he is currently riding an eight-game hitting streak. In the eight contests, Wiemer has recorded 13 hits across 27 at-bats.
The Milwaukee Brewers optioned infielder Brice Turang to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday and reinstated shortstop Willy Adames (concussion) from the seven-day concussion list in a corresponding move. The Brewers want their rookie shortstop to get some more seasoning on the farm after he struggled to the tune of a .205 average (34-for-166) with four doubles, two triples, three home runs, 14 RBI, nine stolen bases and 48 strikeouts in his first 57 major-league games. Adames will return to the regular starting duties at the 6 in Milwaukee. The 23-year-old left-handed-hitting Turang should eventually rejoin the Brew Crew at the big-league level this year, but for now he can be dropped in deep-mixed fantasy leagues.
Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames (concussion) has been activated from the 7-day concussion injured list on Wednesday. He returns to the field after a brief absence after getting hit in the head by a foul ball in late May. The 27-year-old is slashing .205/.292/.384 with nine home runs and 27 RBI in 51 games this season. He's at shortstop and batting second against right-hander Dean Kremer on Wednesday. Fantasy managers should make sure to get Adames back in their lineup for this one.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich was seeing the ball well on Tuesday night in the team's 4-3 extra-innings win over the visiting Baltimore Orioles, as he finished the game 3-for-4 with two doubles, two stolen bases, a run scored and a walk. It was the fourth time in 2023 that Yelich has recorded three hits in a contest. Fantasy managers would like to see more home runs from the 31-year-old left-handed hitter, but they also can't complain about his stat-stuffing performance on Tuesday. It's been nice to see Yelich running more this year, and he's now tied for seventh in MLB with his 16 stolen bases. Overall, he's hitting a solid .258 (55-for-213) with nine doubles, seven home runs, 25 RBI and 41 runs scored in 58 games. Yelich hasn't homered since May 14, but he has five doubles and seven steals since then.
Milwaukee Brewers rookie shortstop Brice Turang went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI, a stolen base, a walk and two strikeouts in the team's 4-3 extra-innings win over the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. It was nice to see some signs of life from Turang, as he entered Tuesday's contest on a seven-game hitless stretch in 19 at-bats with four strikeouts. The 23-year-old shortstop has mostly looked overmatched at the plate in his first year in the big leagues, and he's now hitting just .205 (34-for-166) with four doubles, two triples, three home runs, 14 RBI, nine stolen bases and 16 runs scored in 57 games played. Hopefully his performance on Tuesday will get him going, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect too much.
