Padres | Justin Upton should be fine in park

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 08:38:01 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton hit 29 home runs in 2014, and all would have left the spacious confines of Petco Park, according to a study that was done. The Padres view him as a one-year rental, but that could change as the season progresses.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has a .288-3-8 line in his first 59 at-bats. Two of those homers were at PETCO. At $4,900 (9.8% of your cap), you can use him with confidence on FantasyScore despite his park factors.

Padres | No Justin Upton Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:15:14 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Will Venable receives the start in left field and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore today, but he does have two home runs this season and has speed to boot. He has one home run in nine career at-bats against Lyles, for what it's worth.

Padres | Justin Upton back in action

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:56:49 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) returned to the lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Upton returned to action, then left early, Monday. However, due to the lopsided nature of the score it appears it was simply a precautionary measure to keep him healthy. FantasyScore owners can feel confident using him at $4,900 (or 9.8% of cap).

Padres | Justin Upton leaves game

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:30:37 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) left the game Monday, April 20, against the Colorado Rockies in the middle of the fourth inning after three at-bats. He had been nursing a strained left quadriceps, and might have simply been lifted due to the lopsided score of the game.

Fantasy Tip: All indications are that Uptonís removal from the game was precautionary, but this is one of those instances where FantasyScore owners need to be careful and wait to see a guy make it through a full game before trusting him in the lineup after an injury.

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:57:29 -0700

Last year, Upton hit .286 (34-for-119) with 11 of his 29 home runs off southpaws. He's a strong play at FantasyScore this evening while swinging at hitter-friendly Coors Field, too.

Padres | Justin Upton not in lineup

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:01:38 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. OF Will Venable will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Upton's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) injury over the next few days to see when he will play again. Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 at the plate in 2015 and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Padres | Justin Upton exits

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 15:44:41 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) left the game Saturday, April 18, with a quadriceps strain. He's day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Will Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) has flashed 30-steal potential in the past and would be a nice flyer on FantasyScore if Upton misses time.

Padres | Justin Upton under the weather

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:49:10 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (illness) is not feeling well and might miss a couple days, according to manager Bud Black.

Fantasy Tip: Upton remains a top-end outfield name in fantasy baseball circles, and his floor remains high. He could see a drop in drafts because of his move to pitcher-friendly Petco Park, but Upton has the kind of power that plays anywhere. Scoop him up quickly if there's any value to be had.
