Summer is approaching fast, and fantasy baseball managers are getting into their daily grind. The pre-season planning and draft choices are becoming evident, and rosters constantly need adjusting. Today we will look at three Milwaukee Brewers fantasy baseball players, two to buy and one to sell.

The Brewers are one of the least mainstream teams in MLB. They quietly and effectively play baseball with out much scrutiny and media attention. It’s the perfect place to find underrated and under-appreciated fantasy baseball talent.

. . 76. 2.31 ERA & 21 strike-outs . . Wade Miley. 106. player

Wade Miley isn't fantasy gold, but he is at least fantasy baseball silver as a solid pitcher producing quality starts every outing. With a 3-1 record, 21 strikeouts, and a 2.31 ERA in six starts, he is currently ranked #106 in standard Yahoo fantasy baseball leagues.

He is available to pick up in 60 percent of fantasy leagues and is a great kicker in trades. The Brewers are a young team getting better and Miley has been a rock in the rotation. He is getting better every outing and keeps his walk ratio low.

You can buy him cheap and get solid, reliable production from him. The fantasy buy order on Wade Miley is in full effect. If you plan on dropping struggling big name players like Carlos Correa or Alex Bregman, consider trading them for Miley instead.

. Rowdy Tellez. 99. . . player. 76. 9 HR in 2023

As fantasy baseball season is hitting full gear, the home run is the most coveted stat. Buying home runs cheap is the key to winning any fantasy league.Rowdy Tellez is the cheapest home run you can get.

Currently, he is 7th in the league with nine homers, but he is only owned 79 percent of fantasy leagues. He is at the peak fantasy baseball age of 28 and looks to be having a career year. His slash line is solid across the board, and his home runs won't cost you a ton of strikeouts.

With a current fantasy rank of 99, he is more valuable than big-name first basemen like Anthony Rizzo, Christian Walker, or Andrew Vaughn. Tellez's numbers aren't a fluke or a hot streak either; he has been quietly producing and improving. Buy Rowdy Tellez low right now.

28 runs scored in 2023. . Christian Yelich. 86. player. . 76.

Christian Yelich has been a pleasant fantasy surprise this season. He started with a pre-season draft ranking of 135, with a projected slash line of .242/.345/.383 with 14 home runs and 13 steals. Christian Yelich was a former great heading into his twilight, not getting better.

If you drafted him, you are ecstatic; he has been over-performing projections and is 5th in MLB in runs scored. Yelich is currently ranked 86th in fantasy production; he has been a draft-day steal. However, the numbers are false, sell him and sell now.

The run total is misleading, a bloated stat, and not sustainable. Yelich's best year was in 2018 when he scored 118 times. That year he had a slash line of .326/.402/1.000. It was an impressive year.

This year he is on pace to crush his career high in runs with 133, but the numbers don't add up. He is slashing .242/.324/.688 this year and he has only hit four home runs. That puts him on pace for 19 on the year; he had 36 in 2018. The bottom line is he is not getting on base enough or hitting enough home runs to sustain this run total.

Trading Yelich now while he hot is your best option. Eloy Jimenez and Anthony Rizzo are prime trade targets for Yelich. In a recent Yahoo trade, I've even seen him packaged with Sandy Alcántara for Jose Rodriguez.
