Drew Silva illustrates how Brewers OF Tyrone Taylor has demonstrated the offensive prowess to fill the void left by Hunter Renfroe.
- Always a bit of a roller coaster in terms of fantasy relevance. Tyrone Taylor is on the upswing again for the Brewers, as they try to fend off the Cardinals for what would be a second straight division crown. The 28-year-old outfielder has been a regular in Milwaukee's lineup throughout the month of June, even dating back to May. And he's produced an 887 OPS with three home runs, four doubles, seven RBIs, and eight runs scored over his last 13 games, as of June 26.
He'll be relied on even more heavily leading into the all-star break, with Hunter Renfrow back on the injured list because of a hamstring strain. Taylor has flashed good power and a bit of speed in the past, from the upper minors to his stints at the Major League level. If you lost Renfrow, he's a simple and obvious plug and play option. Or even if you lost Bryce Harper to that thumb fracture he suffered over the final weekend of June, Taylor could at least be a temporary answer. The lackluster non-Brewers pitching in the National League Central only boosts his stock, as does the power friendly home hitting environment at American Family Field.
