Monasterio is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals.
Monasterio started 21 straight games from Aug. 23 through Sept. 15, but he now finds himself out of the lineup for the second time in three days. Josh Donaldson will man the hot corner for a third straight game and could continue cutting into Monasterio's playing time.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Day off Saturday
Monasterio will sit Saturday against the Nationals.
Monasterio has settled into an everyday role in the second half, with Saturday's off day being just his third since the break. His bat has been sub-par for an everyday corner infielder, however, as his .270/.344/.369 slash line is good for a modest 97 wRC+. Josh Donaldson will take over at the hot corner Saturday....

Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Doubles twice, drives in two
Monasterio went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 8-2 victory over the Yankees.
Monasterio led off the seventh with a double, then scored what would turn out to be the game-winning run on a William Contreras single. His second double drove in two and provided insurance as the Brewers pulled away for the win.

Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Notches two hits, stolen base
Monasterio went 2-for-3 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 victory versus San Diego.

Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Goes deep during loss
Monasterio went 3-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base during Tuesday's loss to Colorado.
Monasterio was slashing just .174/.296/.217 during August heading into Tuesday's contest, but he was finally able to break out of his slump against the Rockies. The 26-year-old infielder has never hit more than nine home runs in a season throughout his professional career, so his seventh-inning blast off Kyle Freeland isn't something that should be expected from Monasterio going forward. However, he's demonstrated an above-average ability to get on base with a .367 OBP through 158 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Reaches four times in win
Monasterio went 2-for-2 with a double, two walks and a steal in Monday's victory over the Reds.
The 26-year-old reached the majors for the first time this year, and he has proven to be a valuable utility player, posting a .292 batting average and .382 OBP over 102 PA while making at least five starts at each of the three infield positions left of first base. He is not doing a lot for fantasy players outside of the batting average category, but he is getting regular playing time at the moment, starting nine straight games at the hot corner....

Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Serving as everyday third baseman
Monasterio will start at third base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Phillies.

Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: In Monday's lineup
Monasterio (head) will start at shortstop and bat second in Monday's game against the Reds.
Monasterio exited Sunday's 5-1 win early after being hit in the head on a tag play, but his removal from the contest was described as precautionary. The rookie's presence in the lineup a day later seemingly supports that sentiment, but Monasterio's playing time is soon expected to take a hit. Willy Adames (concussion) looks on track to return from the 7-day injured list Thursday, which will likely leave Monasterio as the odd man out of the Milwaukee infield.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Exits Sunday's game

Monasterio clubbed his first big-league homer during the opening frame to give Milwaukee a 3-0 lead, which was his lone plate appearance before leaving the game.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Andruw Monasterio: Called up to big leagues
The Brewers selected Monasterio's contract from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.
The 25-year-old will get his first taste of the majors, replacing Willy Adames (concussion) on the active roster, after spending nearly a decade in the minor leagues between four different organizations. Monasterio has displayed a discerning eye at the plate with more walks (32) than strikeouts (29) so far this season, and he can run a little as evidenced by his 11 steals through 42 games. However, it remains to be seen exactly what his role will be with the big club.... See More ... See Less
