Description: Prior to Thursday's game, Milwaukee infielder Yuniesky Betancourt had failed to pick up multiple hits in the same game since May 31.
Insight: Betancourt went 4-for-5 with a homer and two RBI Thursday against the Padres. That's as many homers as he had from May 8 to July 24, a stretch in which he hit just .149 (25-for-168). Betancourt hit .276 with eight homers and 24 RBI in his first 30 games this season, but that was a mirage.
 
Cold5/21/2013 11:02:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee infielder Yuniesky Betancourt has yet to manufacture a base hit in 10 at-bats versus Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke.
Insight: Betancourt has awakened from his dream start (.280, 6 HR 21 RBI in 24 April games) and over the past two weeks is batting just .116 without a home run. Back to reality.
 
Hot4/29/2013 11:00:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee infielder Yuniesky Betancourt hit yet another home run Monday against the Pirates, giving him five on the year. He has 20 RBI in 23 games.
Insight: Betancourt went 2-for-4 in the game to raise his average to .286. Betancourt has never displayed this type of power in his career, and owns a .685 OPS in 3,951 major league plate appearances.
 
Hot4/26/2013 1:17:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee infielder Yuniesky Betancourt is a career .438 hitter (7-for-16) with three extra-base hits against Dodgers starter Josh Beckett.
Insight: Betancourt is off to a solid April, batting .279 with three homers and 15 RBI. Add in a favorable matchup and four hits in his last two games and fantasy owners should have him in Friday's lineup.
 
3/28/2013 8:44:00 PM
Description: Yuniesky Betancourt went 3-for-4 Thursday in his return to the Brewers.
Insight: Betancourt signed with Milwaukee on Wednesday, just three days after being released by Philadelphia. He'll make the Brewers' Opening Day roster but he's just a utility guy and probably won't see regular at bats.
 
3/24/2013 6:06:00 PM
Description: The Phillies have cut ties with second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt.
Insight: Betancourt has played well this spring (.447 with 14 RBI in 18 games) but he wasn't going to get much playing time with Chase Utley at second base. He should find a roster spot with another team fairly quickly. The Phillies releasing him is actually better for Betancourt's overall fantasy value.
 
1/28/2013 9:18:00 PM
Description: Former Royals and Brewers second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt has resurfaced with the Phillies.
Insight: Betancourt will need to have a good spring training if he wants to make the big league roster. Even if he does secure a roster spot, he's unlikely to see much playing time unless Chase Utley gets injured.
 
Cold8/5/2012 7:32:00 PM
Description: Kansas City has designated second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt for assignment
Insight: Betancourt (.228, 7 HR, 36 RBI) went hitless Sunday and is now 1-for-23 (.043) over his last six games, so it was just a matter of time before the Royals were going to cut him loose. He could sign elsewhere but it's unlikely he'll carry any fantasy value.
 
7/19/2012 1:30:00 PM
Description: Kansas City second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt should be avoided in fantasy on Thursday. He's just a .111 career hitter against Seattle's Felix Hernandez.
Insight: There aren't many players in this league who have had a lot of success against King Felix but Betancourt (.233, 6 HRs, 31 RBIs) has been especially bad against the Mariners righthander throughout his career. Leave him on the bench today.
 
Cold6/14/2012 1:14:00 PM
Description: Royals second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt probably won't have a very productive fantasy day Thursday against Milwaukee starter Shaun Marcum. He is hitting just .118 against him in 17 career at bats.
Insight: Betancourt (.250, 3 HRs, 10 RBIs) has hit just .200 since coming off the disabled list at the start of the month.
 
5/30/2012 9:42:00 PM
Description: Yuniesky Betancourt is hoping to return to the Royals this weekend when they play host to the Athletics. He's been out since the start of May because of a sprained ankle.
Insight: Betancourt (.280, 1 HR, 3 RBIs) is owned in less than one percent of fantasy leagues so he certainly isn't the most covered second baseman in the world. You could probably do better.
 
5/3/2012 7:00:00 PM
Description: A sprained ankle has sent second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt to the disabled list. He'll be shut down from all baseball activity for the next ten days.
Insight: Betancourt (.280, 1 HR, 3 RBIs) will be replaced at second base by 28-year-old Chris Getz, who is batting .326 with no homers and 4 RBIs this season.
 
4/28/2012 4:36:00 PM
Description: Yuniesky Betancourt is schedule to sit out Saturday's game with Minnesota. Simply a rest day.
Insight: Betancourt has shown double-digit home run power the past two seasons, but has just one longball and three RBI in 13 games. he is, however batting a career-high .289 with a .769 OPS.
 
4/3/2012 9:50:00 PM
Description: Yuniesky Betancourt sat out Tuesday with a sore ankle.
Insight: No worries. Betancourt (.252, 13 HRs, 68 RBIs in 2011) is still on track to play on Opening Day.
 
2/19/2011 5:29:00 PM
Description: The Brewers plan on hitting Carlos Gomez near the bottom of the order, not at the top. SOURCE: MLB
Insight: That makes sense - it doesn't matter how fast you can run if you can't get on base. Expect the Brewers lineup to look like this: Weeks, Hart, Braun, Fielder, McGehee, Betancourt, Gomez, Lucroy. That could get Betancourt more RBI's than expected.
 
9/21/2010 12:02:00 AM
Description: Betancourt went 4-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against the Tigers on Monday night.

8/19/2010 6:52:00 AM
Description: Yuniesky Betancourt homered last night, his 12th of the season. It is a career high in home runs for the SS.
Insight: In a down year for power hitters, Betancourt's ability to hit 15+ homers this year gives him some value in deep mixed leagues.
 
8/19/2010 12:26:00 AM
Description: Betancourt went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against the Indians on Wednesday night.
Insight: Betancourt is hitting .269 with 12 home runs and 55 RBI this season. (SportsBuff.com)

Insight: Mike Aviles is expected to take over as the Royals' starting SS while Betancourt is away from the team. (SportsBuff.com)
