San Diego Padres OF Chris Denorfia (shoulder) could be ready for the start of the regular season, and manager Bud Black is optimistic he'll be ready.

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin (biceps) will be out two to three months after his MRI exam showed a ruptured left biceps tendon.
Fantasy Tip: The Friars will likely shift Will Venable to center field. Chris Denorfia and Seth Smith can form a platoon in right field, with both players being valuable mainly in NL-only leagues. Maybin's 2013 season was derailed by injuries, and this year hasn't started any better. He could become a force for stolen bases later in the year, but he shouldn't be drafted in standard leagues now.

Chicago White Sox OF Alex Rios appears to be the No. 1 target on the Texas Rangers' wish list but talks between the two sides are reportedly "not close." The Rangers are expected to wait and see if other big-name hitters become available via trade, such as Colorado Rockies OF Michael Cuddyer, Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton, San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence or Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista. Texas has also shown interest in Miami Marlins OF Justin Ruggiano, New York Mets OF Marlon Byrd and San Diego Padres OF Chris Denorfia.

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin (knee) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 10, with a left knee sprain. The Padres have recalled OF Jaff Decker from Triple-A Tucson.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how long Maybin will be out, but a knee sprain may require more than the minimum stay. Decker, 23, would be making his major league debut with his first appearance and is one of the club's better prospects, although he's not necessarily in line for much PT at this point. Chris Denorfia should have deep mixed league value for a stretch again.

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin (knee) hurt one of his knees on an attempt to make a diving catch on Sunday, June 9, against the Colorado Rockies. It's unclear which knee he injured.
Fantasy Tip: Great. Maybin just returned from a wrist injury and was making up for lost time on the base paths. Hopefully it's not serious. Chris Denorfia would regain some fantasy value if Maybin were to miss time.
