Jean Segura extended his current hit streak to five games after going 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored in the 5-2 win over the Reds Monday.

While it's true Segura has five-game hitting streak, Monday was Segura's first multi-hit game since July 7th. It's unknown whether or not Segura will play everyday following the heartbreaking death of his young son over the All-Star break. Segura's been one of fantasy's biggest disappointments, slashing .236/.269/.328 with four home runs and 15 steals. He's been about 40-percent below league-average on offense.

Ryan Braun broke out of his career-long funk against Mat Latos Monday as he finished the night going 2-for-4 with two RBI and both hits coming off of the Reds starter.

Braun ripped a double and a single off Latos as the Brewers tagged him for four earned runs in seven innings of work. Braun has hits in each of his last nine games, and assuming his back issue is behind him, he could be in for a second-half surge. He hasn't produced like a first-round fantasy pick, but he's still providing in all five categories.

Wily Peralta improved to 11-6 with the win over the Reds Monday allowing one run, three hits, a home run, two walks, while striking out five over seven innings.

Peralta was stellar Monday night against a struggling Reds offense that's been decimated by injury -- see Votto, Joey and Phillips, Brandon. Billy Hamilton was the offender who took Peralta deep, his sixth homer of the season. It's been an up-and-down season for Peralta, but he's pitched very well in his last two starts. He's name to watch for the second half.

Ryan Braun is hitting just .100 (2-for-20) in his career versus Reds Monday night starter Mat Latos.

Braun has been hitting very well lately, pushing his average up to near .300 on the season. He does have his work cut out for him at home tonight, although Latos may have some rust, having last pitched on July 11.

Brewers optioned RHP Rob Wooten to Triple-A Nashville.

After allowing the game-winning run to score in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, Wooten was sent packing to the minor leagues to work out the kinks. Prior to Sunday's poor showing Wooten had allowed just one run over his previous six appearances (6.1 IP). He will be replaced by Jeremy Jeffress on the active roster.

Brewers transferred RHP Jim Henderson to the 60-day disabled list.

Despite being transferred to the 60-day disabled list, the Brewers have announce on Saturday that he will resume his rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville. He is expected to make at least one appearance at this level before being activated at some point later this week. Unless Francisco Rodriguez was to go down with an injury, Henderson's fantasy value remains at an all-time low moving forward.

Brewers purchased the contract of RHP Jeremy Jeffress from Triple-A Nashville.

Jeffress will replace Rob Wooten on the active roster and will serve in low-leverage situations out of the Brewers bullpen. The Brewers will likely being back Wooten once he works out his kinks in the minor leagues, so this stint in the big leagues may be short-lived for this former first-round pick back in 2006 by the Blue Jays.

Rickie Weeks went 2-for-5 with one RBI, one stolen base and two strikeouts in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Nationals.

Weeks got the start with a tough lefty on the mound in Gio Gonzalez. This was Weeks' best performance in almost a month, and he's been all but fully displaced by left-handed hitting second baseman Scooter Gennett. He'll continue to only see at-bats against lefties. Weeks was looking like a decent bounce back candidate earlier this season, but I think it's safe to say that ship has sailed.

Yovani Gallardo coughed up four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six batters over six innings against the Nationals on Sunday.

Gallardo was undone by two-run home run by Ryan Zimmerman in the fourth inning. The poor outing raised Gallardo's ERA from 3.68 to 3.79. While Yo has rebounded a bit from his poor 2013, he's not even close to pitcher was just a few years ago. He's pitching with depleted velocity, and much of his fantasy value in the good-ol-days was his ability to consistently strikeout about a batter per inning. The newest iteration of Gallardo is walking fewer people, but the strikeouts have waned into very average territory. He now has 92 strikeouts in 121 innings.
