Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Friday against Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis had a fantastic game Thursday when he went 2-for-5 with a double, home run, and three RBI. However, he'll have the night off as Milwaukee will go with an outfield of Jake Elmore, Keon Broxton, and Domingo Santana when they face Wade LeBlanc and the Mariners on Friday evening.

Nieuwenhuis went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis entered the day slashing just .126/.263/.200 with one home run in road games, versus .293/.385/.571 with nine homers at home. However, he was able to turn around a 94-mph fastball from the NL's reigning Cy Young winner, Jake Arrieta, in the fourth inning Thursday. Nieuwenhuis' blast was his 11th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 37, both of which are career highs for the 29-year-old outfielder. He's benefited this season from a 14 percent walk rate and solid power, but his .214 average suppresses his value in most formats.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

He made a whopping three errors in the field Wednesday, so it's understandable that he is out of the lineup Thursday. Keon Broxton will get the start in center field and hit seventh against lefty Robbie Ray.

Nieuwenhuis is not in the starting lineup for the Brewers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has not been able to consistently hit for average this season (.210 in 219 at-bats), but continues to draw enough walks to warrant him playing time in the outfield for Milwaukee. Keon Broxton will start in center and Jake Elmore in right for the Brewers on Tuesday.

Nieuwenhuis went 1-for-2 with a solo homer and a walk Sunday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis' eighth homer of the year came in the ninth inning, but left the Brewers a run short of tying the game. He's only collected seven hits in 41 July at-bats, and he's slashing .209/.325/.395 on the year.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Although Nieuwenhuis hit two home runs in Saturday's contest, the Brewers will opt to start Jake Elmore in center field as the left-handed Jon Lester takes the mound for the Cubs. Nieuwenhuis will likely return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-3 with a pair of homers and four RBI in a 6-1 victory over the Cubs on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old entered Saturday's game with only three hits in all of July. It's safe to say he's broken out of his slump. This was his first multi-homer game since July 12, 2015 when he hit three bombs with the Mets. Nieuwenhuis is hitting .207 with seven homers, 30 RBI and 25 runs in 213 at-bats.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game Thursday against Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis is 1-for-26 (.038) in his last 11 games dating back to July 4 and has been ceding playing time lately as a result. The 28-year-old will look to get back on the right track when the Brewers begin a home series against the Cubs on Friday.

Nieuwenhuis is out of the lineup Saturday against Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He is 1-for-16 over his last six games, and that slump will result in him beginning Saturday's game on the bench. Ramon Flores will get the start in center field and hit eighth against the Reds.

Nieuwenhuis is not in Friday's lineup for the series opening against St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has started the past two games for the Brewers, but will get a day off Friday. In his place, Keon Broxton will man center field while batting eighth against Jaime Garcia and the Cardinals. Nieuwenhuis will likely be back in the lineup Saturday.
