Description: Catcher George Kottaras has been traded to the Oakland A's. The Brewers designated Kottaras for assignment earlier this week.
Insight: Milwaukee no longer needed Kottaras after starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy (.338, 5 HRs, 30 RBIs) returned from the disabled list on Thursday. Kottaras (.209, 3 HRs, 12 RBIs) will now compete with Derek Norris (.205, 3 HRs, 11 RBIs) and Kurt Suzuki (.212, 1 HR, 17 RBIs) for playing time in Oakland.

Description: Milwaukee backup catcher George Kottaras figures to get most of the playing time now that starter Jonathan Lucroy has been placed on the disabled list. Lucroy is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a fractured right hand.
Insight: Kottaras is just a .217 hitter, but has shown some decent power numbers (.881 OPS). Martin Maldonado will be called up from Nashville to be his back up. Maldonado was batting .198 and doesn't figure to have any fantasy value.
